It was 2013 when we first discussed the idea. With my colleagues Simon and Tom, I often exchanged teaching ideas. We came to talk about the importance of great exemplars. Why was there no place on the internet where we could find pieces of writing to use in our lessons? We got to work and put something together. First, colleagues started using our website. Then, the children found out that their best work might find its way to the internet. The sheer excitement! That’s how Pobble started.
Today, Pobble showcases over 100,000 pieces of writing, published by thousands of teachers. Pobble gives them what they need to teach writing: the best teaching resources, a real audience for their pupils, and practical assessment tools. For pupils, the platform is a fantastic opportunity to engage with peers around the world. For parents, it provides a unique way to connect with their child’s learning journey.
For me, the best part is that we’ve made writing ridiculously exciting for so many children all over the world. And we’re just getting started...
