Thank you to Scott Jones for sharing this link to Mr P's ICT Blog. This is a really useful reflective post investigating how Epic Citadel could be used to stimulate create writing in class. Mr P also references Tim Ryland's 'Pickpocket Story' which goes one step further in my opinion, by literally putting the children into the virtual environment using Green Screen technology.
