I'm an Innovative Educator and I'm going to Cape Town!

What a respectable siganture! I still can't believe that I'm one of those who will have the opportunity to meet innovative educators from all over the world. What's more, I'm one of them!

What have I done to deserve this? I just came up with an idea - and these fabulous teachers were kind enough to join me with their students.
They are Innovative Educators and I wish they all went to Cape Town with me!

Dear Arjana

Many, many congratulations!! What an absolutely fantastic achievement. You have done so much to deserve this accolade, and the fact that your idea has inspired a global response is utterly awesome.

Sending you a virtual hug and a huge round of applause from Abruzzo.

Best wishes

Dear Janet,
thank you very much for your kind words. I think it's all because of Twitter and the wonderful members of our PLN. Actually, it all started with Shelly's tweet about a fantastic tool called Glogster....
All the best

Dear Arjana,
I'm so happy you've been selected to spread your innovative teaching ideas in South Africa. I'm quite sure teachers would learn a lot from you out there. During the Webskills course, you were somewhat a lighthouse to us all.

Dear Arbi,
you're so kind! Thank you very much. It was my deep pleasure to learn with and from educators like you. I admire you for everything you've been doing with your students and I hope that one day our two schools will collaborate. What do you think?
All the best

Hi, Arjana!

My students and me are supporting your project which is really great, simple but GREAT and shows to the world that good thinks can happen when people come together with a positive attitude. Glogster is really a great tool for teachers and students, so good luck in Capetown. We are with you!
Thanks for adding me in your list of Innovative Educators, I'm proud of that!!!
