GEC2013

Missing this event , you are missing the train of change. I have been attending GECs for about three years. Every single moment I spent in those informative sessions was priceless. For me, GEC is an open opportunity to develop professionally, to share ideas and to meet professionals from whom we have a learnt. Once you attend the first session, you become GEC-holic. After last year 's conference, I have shared what I have learnt with my colleagues and put into practice a number of new…

“I am 12 years old and I attend seventh grade at a school in Madrid.”

Our interlocutor seems shy but she is not. Her curiosity gets the best of her and she soon takes control of the conversation. She tells us interesting things about her school, her class, her teacher and her friends. It is her daily routine and the basis of her future. And she certainly knows what she is talking about, having attended classes for more than eight years. Quite a professional!

We…

BYOP - Bring Your Own Passion

The idea of BYOD – Bring Your Own Device (or BYOT – Bring Your Own Technology) is something that is bubbling away in the back of my mind. But recently I’ve turned my thoughts to something more important to transforming education for our kids at Crusoe, and that is BYOP – students bringing their own passions to school, and how we tap into them.

When a colleague showed an interest in our Global Writers’ Club, I was…
