the world is watching

On the way to a conference in Birmingham, Stephen was emailing from the train to a contact in Scotland about splitting large schools into smaller schools (Schools within schools), simultaneously I was reading that days paper online from Cayman about students perceptions of splitting their large school into four - one year on. Stephen took that link and sent it to Scotland and also included that into his keynote lecture, which was also being beamed into from Hong Kong. This meant that four countries were discussing a Cayman initiative by 4.00a.m. and sharing that days paper before anyone in Cayman had even seen it. This is a real demonstration about the power of the technology in sharing ideas and best practice around the world and one we must develop for our students. This is so exciting but challenging for many people.
