Yes, it’s almost that time of year again. Yes, on October 5 it will be World Teacher Day. So take a moment and send a quick email to a teacher that made a difference to you or your children. There’s nothing quite so lovely as getting a note from a student who tells you that you made a difference to them. I know it’s the true reward of the teaching profession.
Anyway, I’m looking to also launch a new project I’ve been working on, and I reckon October 5 could be just the right date to do it. It’s a podcasting project where I’m getting the bestest, smartest, most creative teachers I know and sticking a few of them in a Skype conference, recording our conversation and releasing it as a podcast. We’ll talk about technology education in particular and what we can do to make school a great experience for the kids we teach.
Check it out on www.virtualstaffroom.net, and hopefully by October 5 we will have podcast number 1 up and running! Details for subscribing via iTunes or some other RSS aggregator will be on the site.
