Teachers Without Borders

Teachers Without Borders!

I am so excited! I have been accepted on a team for Teachers Without Borders Canada! I can hardly believe it. I followed Sharon Peter’s blog when she went last summer and I thought that it sounded like a fantastic experience. I applied in the hopes that I might be considered, but I suspected that there might be much stronger candidates.

I will be spending three and a half weeks in South Africa and three weeks in Kenya. We will be giving workshops in ICT and visiting schools to help develop their school ICT planning teams.

I hope that I can make some connections with teachers there and bring them back into my classroom at home. My mind is spinning with the possible projects that we could collaborate on next year.

I know that bandwidth will be an issue and that I may not be able to get online as much as I would like. I plan to blog about my experiences this summer. If I cannot post over the summer, I will write anyways and back-date the posts when I get back.

Wish me luck!
