Three Days - Two Exhibitions!
It was very nice to be situated in one place and be able to talk to so many people during the day. As teachers are so busy, much of our time is spent on the phone chasing shadows, so it made a nice change to be the proverbial honey pot, with interested parties swarming around us. I think I could get used to that!
Another day, another exhibition! Tomorrow sees us attend the ASE (Science Association) Exhibition in Leamington Spa where we plan to deliver a Virtual Classroom showcase. Four schools from differnet parts of England will be live online delivering conclusions to their joint project; both to our audience, and to each other. This will show the power of collaborative learning and how it is possible for schools to share knowledge across any geography, without even having to leave the classroom!
This may have huge repercussions on how we share knowledge. Using our Virtual Classroom, subject experts can deliver the very best tutorials to all students regardless of their location or status. Just imagine if Shakespeare could have taught our kids English Literature......the mind boggles.
