Very early on Monday morning I will be heading to Berlin for the 2010 Innovative Education Forum. This is because the Pirates and Social Networking project was selected to represent the UK along with three other projects. The UK Partners in Learning blog has a nice write up that summarises each project. This journey started back in November when I submitted a Virtual Classroom Tour of my idea. Thanks go to Ollie Bray and Chicken Man for the encouragement :-)
Most of all, I am looking forward to seeing innovative projects from across Europe and hope to leave Berlin with a few new ideas to take into the classroom. I left the UK event full of enthusiasm and ideas.
I have slightly modified the emphasis of my project for Berlin, linking to the recent 20th anniversary of the collapse of the Berlin Wall. I also want to show that the technique is not a one trick pony!
The event's Twitter hashtag is #IEF_2010 if you'd like to follow events. You can also contact me via Twitter.
The image at the top of this post is the poster I will be taking with me.
I hope to Tweet and Blog from the event dependent on internet access, iPhone battery life and roaming charges ;-)
