    Hi Tricia,

    My name is Rosie Rainforth I am a second year journalism student at Leeds Trinity University and as part of my coursework I have to write specialist news stories and publish them on a blog. I have chosen education and I am focusing on technology in classrooms. I read in The Guardian that the Stephen Perse Foundation incorporates technology into the cirriculum.

    Kind Regards,

    Rosie Rainforth.
