#eTUK17 – the sketchnotes

I spent this past weekend in Nottingham at the 12th eTwinning UK National Conference held at The DeVere Jubilee Conference Centre – always the NCSL to me though! The name of the venue might have changed but the sense of community, fun and learning never varies, and once more I came away inspired, energised and still laughing at […]

My #sketchnotes from the eTwinning National Conference 2016

Walking the walk as well as talking the talk, I’ve tidied up my sketch notes from Nottingham and the National eTwinning Conference, added references that I needed to look up and completed quotations that I’d not managed to finish. They’re presented below in chronological order. I hope that they give you a taste of the weekend’s sessions […]

Lisibo talks 3 – Sketchnoting for beginners @ #eTUK16

This weekend I’ve been in Nottingham at the NCL (I think that’s what it’s now called!) for the National eTwinning Conference. “Interesting” given the events on Friday but also good timing as I can’t think of anywhere I’d rather have been at such a time, reaffirming the joy and value of collaboration. After several requests following […]

#eTwAmbsUK – eTwinning Ambassadors Conference

eTwinning National Conference: 5th-7th June: NCTL #eTUK15

¡Más vale tarde que nunca! The first weekend of June saw the annual National eTwinning Conference take place at NCTL in Nottingham. Once more it was a weekend of learning, laughter and (can’t think of another L) celebrating the wonders of collaboration across boundaries. I spoke once more about Twitter – Are you a Twit or […]

Are you a Twit or a Tweep? #etuk14

I”ve been presenting today on Twitter at the UK National eTwinning Conference in Nottingham at the National College of Leadership. Below is my presentation – the videos have obviously not uploaded so I’ve embedded them below. I’ve also added a link to my Pinterest where I’ve bookmarked some useful links to Twitter, particularly in education. Are […]

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 […]
