Let out for good behaviour – #ILILC3

My second presentation at ILILC3 was called Let out for good behaviour. The blurb said Let out for good behaviour? refers to leaving the classroom being (often) seen as a treat. There are many ways to ‘break free’ of the walls of your classroom, both physical and virtual, and this session will involve both. Participation is […]

eTwinning impact study

As regular readers will know, I am an eTwinning Ambassador (that is a very old picture!).  I say ‘I am’ as, whilst I’m no longer in the UK, I am hoping to continue to help promote and encourage involvement in eTwinning now I’m in Switzerland. Why? Because I’ve seen the difference it’s made to my school […]

One such ‘lovely person’ was Lidija from Croatia who, as well as a teacher, is a writer and had asked if she might interview some people for an article. Guess who got volunteered? You can watch my interview below, and also others […]

UPDATE – ‘TeachMeet styley thingy’ #etwpdw

Thanks to Lidija from Croatia, here are some brief highlights of the ‘TeachMeet styley thingy’ at #etwpdw, showing some of the people about whom I blogged earlier this week. Thanks to eagle eyed @joedale for spotting it!

Lisibo @ TeachMeet #etwpdw

In my seven minutes (I think the lovely @digitalmaverick gave me a little longer….) I talked about 1. using Wallwisher to collect ideas, have asynchronus discussions and review learning / progress.  I set up […]

‘TeachMeet styley thingy’ #etwpdw

Yesterday, as the European eTwinning Ambassadors PDW at National college of School Leadership in Nottingham drew to a close, I took part in what Drew Buddie aka @digitalmaverick entitled ‘a Teachmeet style-y thingy’.

An (eTwinning) Ambassador’s Tale

Michael Purves shared his ‘tale’ this morning.  A pretty inspiring tale it was too, taking him from a ‘despondent, stuck in a rut’ teacher into an eTwinner extraordinaire running eTwinning projects between 40+ countries. His journey started in 2007 when he was browsing the LTS  website with a colleague and came across eTwinning.  Having registered his interest, […]
