Little Cayman LIVE at "Be Very Afraid" in London

History was made to day as students from the Little Cayman Education Service join in live the "Be very Afraid" exhibition of students using technology in London. This project, which I managed for the MInistry, in conjunction with Stephen Heppell and Mnistry technical staff allowed Little Cayman Education Service students demonstrate how they used their new technology to link with the UK to share lessons and learn from each other. The progress they have made in the three weeks they have had their Mac Note books has been truely remarkable and really has demonstrated the value that using technology can add to lessons.This particular blog entry is being written during this five hour event. Students, teachers and parents got up at 3.00a.m. this morning to start the link at 4.00 a.m. Year 6 student Arrowe has talked to over twenty people so far, whilst simultaneously taking their photographs, creating a picture wall, writing a blog entry and emailing work to the BVA event in London.Pictured above: Arrowe showing people in the UK where the Cayman Islands are, with Mr Mark Ray from the Department of Education Services holding the laptop with in built camera to show the map, and Arrowe talking to visitors at "Be Very Afraid", something he will be doing for five hours. Year 2 student Jovian was rather too shy to talk although he did wave at some visitors.
