INDIGO Learning, the St Ives-based educational software developers, has had its latest program for schools, BuzzWebz, short listed for a BETT Award in the creative and constructive tools category.
The program enables children to work collaboratively on producing web pages based on topics that are being studied at school.
With schools looking for ways to link creativity with the creative use of the Internet, BuzzWebz provides an excellent solution.
The BETT Awards winners will be announced at The Grosvenor House, London, after the first day of the BETT show today (January 10).

Manager director Paul Robison said: "Even making the short list against such tough opposition is a real achievement for us - but having listened to the feedback from teachers who use BuzzWebz in the classroom, I'm not completely surprised. It's a fantastically creative program that gives children the chance to work together on different themes of the same topic and link them together on a highly intuitive website of their own design.
