CMCLC lends its support to Honeycomb By Luke Brown on 15th May, 2009

Here at the CLC we will be helping to introduce Honeycomb to local primary schools.

Honeycomb allows students to add various content to their own web page, and share this with teachers and fellow students, thereby promoting collaberative learning. This could include text, videos or blogs and all of the content can be edited quickly and easily.

Central Manchester CLC Launches Learning Platform By Victoria Clarkson on 15th May, 2009

Central Manchester CLC has put together a directory which should be your starting place to view and use learning materials that the CLC has created.

You can access it at /Learning, or via the link down the left hand side of this website.

The directory is split into subject and topic.

This directory is a work in progress so you should check back for new updates and materials that might be of interest.

You can access the old CLC homepage for now by clicking here
