Making Drop Downs with MS Word update

Thanks to Joe Dale for his comment and pointing me to his very useful blog and video tutorial about making writing frames which include drop downs. The video is a great walkthrough for newbies, with handy hints, including how to change "dropdown" background colours, font size, style and adding online help for students and other users. Special thanks from me for the tip about inserting spaces before and after the menu entries. There are host of other fantastic support tools, links and resources in this rich space, focussed on Integrating ICT into the MFL Classroom. Since these are language focussed, many of them are readily adaptable for use in the primary literacy hour. Check out Joe's Blog at, Joe also presented at BETT this year, and his blog spot about this, with direct links to the video above and more can be found by following this link.
