Sunday 15th February

Hadn't realised until today that there was actually a European Commission for Lifelong Learning Programme, within which they are actioning eTwinning - a means of communicating, sharing ideas and running online collaborative projects. All this through an online platform which makes use of the 2.0 web tools to facilitate communication and where teachers can show creative ways to strengthen the classroom work they do.
It made interesting reading and certainly makes you think of how things may change in the future, in the classroom. Will all schools be 'eTwinned' in the future - to other UK schools, or schools worldwide? How will they utilise this? Will it start with simple emails, etc and build up to '2nd life' type worlds where they are taught in other countries too? Anything is possible!!
