I am a Year 6 teacher and ICT co-ordinator for Linaker Primary School in Southport. I am lucky enough to be in a school that embraces ICT whole-heartedly; we give every child in Year 6 an iPad to use in school and at home. We also have sets of laptops for every class throughout the school, an Apple Mac ICT suite and a radio station.

My greatest achievement in ICT so far is helping lead Linaker Primary School to second place in the Make IT Happy 2012 competition.
