There is a new project coming up:
A European Comenius-project called " firstname.lastname@example.org – Learning community for Web 2.0 teaching" plans to set up a European community for teachers who are interested in integrating web 2.0 in classroom or distance teaching in school. The idea is to provide teachers with inspiration and motivation by providing interesting show cases, good practice examples, video tutorials, success stories of pilot projects and enabling communication with experts in a discussion forum. The community will focus on teachers who are beginners in implementing web 2.0 in classes.
The project is coordinated by Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (Institute for Innovation in Learning) and it has six partners around Europe, Otavan Opisto (nettilukio
) being one of them and me being the contact person at Otava.
The project will start end of 2009, the kick-off meeting is planned for October.
The idea and aims of the project sound very similar to sometu and I'm sure sometu-people will have a lot to share with the European teachers involved in the project. I also regard the project as a perfect opportunity for sometu to go international. So, let's go for it! :) I'll let you know as soon as I know more.
