Global heroes from Seattle

Jul 3, 2012

It's been almost a year since I attended the first Partners in Learning Institute in Seattle along with 49 innovative educators from all over the world. We've stayed in contact ever since on the various social networking sites, the Dirty Fifty Facebook page being the one I like most.

 All these educators have inspired and motivated not only their students, but also their fellow teachers. That's why they've been interviewed for Daily Edventures, a blog by Anthony Salcito, Vice President of Worldwide Education at Microsoft. I'm really proud and honored to be one of these global heroes in education. You can read more about what we've been doing and how we've been trying to change education and bring innovation into our classrooms. Here are the interviews in the order they were were published.

Children need assistance from adults to cope with digital literacy
Nearly everything I do now is aimed at encouraging teachers to embrace innovation in education.
Innovation doesn’t only apply to technology, but also to the way teachers inspire students. 
Technology can bring the real world into the classroom.
The present elitist system needs to be carefully dismembered into a system that recognizes that each individual is unique and gifted.
Dare to use media and technolgy!

A Partners in Learning Institute Reunion: Learn from the Masters

Sonja was our trainer at the Institute.
I look forward to the day that teachers stop thinking of technology as another ’thing‘ that they have to deal with and it truly becomes a tool that is so integrated into teaching and learning, that it becomes invisible.


They're my global heroes too.

More to come, watch this space.
