There is a new focus for me in my learning journey! It's time to say farewell to my geography classes (in the future, not for away from now) and concentrate me on a new subject: Digital and Media Literacy education! Hello world! Here I am to ask a lot of questions! (and I already got some answers from you!)
Today the draft proposal of our IVLP visit arrived. We will visit Washington, Kalamazoo and Providence. We will be visiting the following schools:
The Department of State has outlined the following specific objectives for the project:
“You are one of the experts we would hereby like to invite to join this study tour”
I had to read en re-read this message over and over again. But the message didn't change. It's true. The U.S.A. has this IVLP program up and running since 1940. Thousands of experts from all over the globe had received this message. As an expert in their discipline they were invited to visit the States in this professional program.
And I am 1 of them!
EU code week is a grassroots initiative which aims to bring coding and digital literacy to everybody in a fun and engaging way. On this website you can find more information. During my digital literacy lessons I started with coding last week. Some nice moments I would love to share with you.
Last week was my first week back to school! We did something different then we did before. We held our own basecamp. Inspired by Lisa Johnsonlast year in Austin. Read her blog here.
It's been a week ago since I go to registration.
Not more then 4 days ago that I left Noordwijkerhout my head full of inspiration.
Last summer in Austin, I had the pleasure to meet Lisa Johnson aka TechChef4you. She shared here ideas about iPad basecamps in our homegroup-time during the Worldwide institute for Apple Distinguished Educators. Since that time I follow her on Twitter and her blog (not every week I must confess!) and she inspires me!
Now she has written her second book! Here are some of my thoughts about it.
t was my first global institute.
It was my first time ever outside Europe.
It was my first time ever traveling on my own....(so when my flight was cancelled and my bagage was not where I was, I was so happy to have my dutch ADE's who were already there and helped me out, waited for me, arranged clothes and toothbrush for my couldn't feel better!)
I didn't know what to expect.
This weeks chat was hosted by me! It was al about captivating lessons with iPad.
This weeks chat is hosted by Koen Marien and the topic is Global collaboration.
