Hi Theresa -

Thanks for your submission. Can you tell me whether or not you are presenting on behalf of a for profit company or whether you are a consultant? Also, may I suggest that you develop your proposal a bit more and make clear connections to our mission? Our event is focused on global collaboration, not on the ICT itself.

Take care,

Hi Lucy,

This is something a group of educators and I presented over the past few months.  We planned it over the summer and presented a workshop to the teachers in my school in August.  Then we have follow up sessions once a month.  This project is intended for teachers to learn more about web tools and how they are used in the classroom.  The main group of presenters began from a skype group and will continue to grow in the months ahead.

Great!! Just need you to edit this and beef up the global connections aspect.

Thanks Lucy!

Perfect! Can you put this in the body of your proposal? Go to OPTIONS in the upper right hand corner, edit the discussion and save?

Thanks!

Done - thank you!

All the best with this session, Theresa. I have a class then, but will try and logon. It might be of interest to my class as well. They are 16 and 17 years of age and make up my year 11 IT class. There are only four of them left at school. What do you think?

That sounds great!  Would love to have your students listen.  :)

Hi Theresa,

I hope I will be able to join your session. I can always learn something useful at your sessions.

Tatyana

It will be great to see you, Tatyana.

Good luck Theresa,

    I will try to pop in on the session if I can.  You always have great tips and good resources.

Helen

Thanks, Helen!
