I have been using The Learning place for more than two years and i think this is a great resource that connects parents, teachers and students together. My son had been using this site when he was in year 2 which is last year which supported the integration of using ICTs at home and school. He had his own login details and would post something to his teacher maybe during the day or on the weekend. His post/comments would be available to all of his friends to view and comment on his own post. I guess its similar to a blog but different in some way.
As a parent i was able to see all the unit work for the whole year for English, Mathematics etc. Educational youtube clips were provided for both children and parents to view at home together. I would recommend this to everybody to join ‘The Learning Place’ – ( http://education.qld.gov.au/learningplace/ ) as it provides a learning environment for connecting, discovering and access to resources and great to connect students and parents by keeping them informed about their child’s education.
