With one-act-plays, plays for schools and children’s theatre groups and panto scripts all on line. Pick a pantomime script or a play script from the shelf – you get to browse the script before you choose whether to buy it or not.

In “Hardcore History” Dan Carlin takes his “Martian”, outside-the-box way of thinking and applies it to the past. Was Alexander the Great as bad a person as Adolf Hitler? What would Apaches with modern weapons be like? Will our modern civilization ever fall like civilizations from past eras? This is a difficult-to-classify show that has a rather sharp edge.

Students and teachers have a new way of communicating with the world – by using blogs! After requests for a safe environment from a number of schools and Local Authorities for blogging, YHGfL are piloting their newly created Classblog. See http://shareit.yhgfl.net Specially designed and created to appeal to children and teenagers, the facility allows all students and teachers to safely write a blog from within their school/college – via a username and password.
The blogs will be fully moderated, can be accessed globally and once written, the text cannot be altered by other users. YHGfL have added in the ability to videocast/podcast so that users can download entries to a variety of devices, e.g. mp3 and mp4 players.
Currently, the project is being piloted by Wakefield and Calderdale and it is then to be rolled out across the region.
Free music downloads are available to all YHGfL member schools, thanks to a unique service via the National Education NetworkThrough the project, teachers and students have access to literally thousands of music tracks of original composition, performances and recordings.
Audio Network provides schools and colleges with free access to rights-cleared, industry-standard, audio files for editing and re-use in school. It can be used for a whole range of creative activities in any subject area and at any Key Stage – but, says YHGfLâ€™s Collaborative Technologies Manager, Andrew Lickley, it is particularly useful for pupils making soundtracks.
