Re-launch of the RRF website - new look and adding a blog!

Post by Debbie Hepplewhite » Wed Feb 01, 2017 12:15 pm

Greetings everyone!

A very belated Happy New Year to all (2017).

We are very pleased with an exciting development for the Reading Reform Foundation - a 'new look' website - now complete with its own blog - thanks to RRF committee member, Anne Glennie (designer and administrator).

Yes - we are still in the process of adding more material, and modifying some existing material - but it's really good to get the site and forum back and to be assured that once again the RRF has a full presence on the internet.

We also wish to thank Maggie Downie (and her son) who for many years has managed the RRF website and made a huge contribution to information and understanding in the field of foundational literacy via the RRF message forum.

It seems we have had some technical glitches with adding messages to the forum just prior to closing down our former RRF site, so if this continues to be the case, please contact me at debbie@hepplewhite.org and we'll get that problem sorted!!!

Please do visit our blog where Dr Marlynne Grant has contributed some very interesting discussion points re content and approaches to foundational literacy:

Congratulations and thanks to Anne, Maggie and Downie junior. Happy New Year to everybody.

Hi Ken,

We've updated to the latest version of the forum software - consider it still in 'test mode' and fingers crossed that we're up and running again.

Thank you so much for your patience!

We'll be adding an 'RRF' header image shortly.

Please do try and post, and email me if you don't succeed this time around.

Best wishes,

Debbie :roll:

It is good to see the message board up and running again. And thanks in particular to Dave and Debbie, Anne Glennie and Maggie and her son.

Just testing whether posting works this time! It's great to see the website showing signs of life once again- thank you to everyone involved, both in the old version and the new.

Hi Joan,

It's great to hear from you - we need to pick ourselves up and brush ourselves off and continue along our merry way discussing issues enthusiastically via the RRF forum.

I would encourage any new readers to the forum to use our 'search' facility if they have any questions, alongside running the questions past others via the forum.

As you know, our forum archives are extremely content-rich and informative!
