Master Training

Last week I was in the beautiful town of Echuca running a Master Trainers Intel Teach to the Future Essentials course with 9 very enthusiastic and intelligent teachers. As Master Trainers they will then return to their schools and train 10 more teachers in the Intel course.
In this way they are developing their own skills and also learning how to train others in the art of teaching with ICT.
Although it wasn't officially part of the course, we started to talk a little about the impact of Web 2.0 and what it will mean to us and our students.
I think it is something that will become more and more real to us and our students and harnessed in the right way will offer a whole new way for people to learn, think and express themselves.
