Each month we highlight a #MashoftheMonth, focusing on a tool or application within Purple Mash and how it can be used within the classroom to support learning across the curriculum. During the month, if you share how, you have used the #MashoftheMonth, you will then be entered into a draw to win a 2Simple Goody Bag!
Our Mash of the Month for June is the recently updated 2Publish. This powerful, easy-to-use publishing tool really does bring learning to life. Teachers and students can access thousands of ready-made templates covering a huge range of cross-curricular content that you are able to tailor to your specific needs. There is even a blank template if you want to create something totally bespoke.

As more teachers are looking to integrate digital technologies across the curriculum within their classes, we are delighted to share with you some exciting updates and new features that have been added to our DigiTech Scheme of work. To further support the delivery in school, enhance the impact of lessons and reduce teacher workload, we have updated the lesson plans, included editable downloadable slideshows for every unit, included supporting videos for teachers, updated our knowledge organisers, prior learning and future learning overviews, concept maps to gather information before teaching the units and\or after completing it and quizzes to review students' understanding from the unit, all to ensure that you can teach digital technologies, support ICT competencies and further students' learning across the whole curriculum with confidence.
