Often what we may find initially chaotic, disorienting and strange in other countries can actually spark new ways of thinking about teaching and learning. Through the voices of teachers and students from around the world, we’ll examine the unique aptitudes which allow successful expats to thrive in any environment. These are exactly the skills that future students and teachers will need to confidently enter the digital, global, converging, collaborative world of tomorrow – wherever they might be physically located."
"Here is my collection of resources that I’ve found useful when working with students and teachers to create scratch projects. Please use the comments to inform me of any other good resources. Happy scratching"
Excellent wiki by Anne Baird in Australia "This Teaching with Thinking and Technology wiki is designed to document ideas and collect resources for teachers and students who are interested in using the web effectively and smartly. My aim is to assist in developing a curriculum that meets the academic, social and personal needs of our students. The major focus of this site is investigating how Web 2.0 applications can be used to promote thinking, sharing, collaborating and communicating between teachers and students. The sites listed here are but a few of what is on the web. It will hopefully begin a journey of discovery for you."
