It's a small 21st century learning world....

Following on from the post below, where I arranged for students in Cayman to talk to a school design workshop in the UK organised by Professor Stephen Heppell, I received an email from my colleagues in the excellent education marketing company Grebot Donnelly Associates in the U.K.
.
They have been doing some work with schools in Kent, which, as part of the Building Schools of the Future, had sent some students to... you guessed it .... a workshop about school design, where the students spoke to two countries including the Cayman Islands.
.
Grebot Donnelly just wrote to me to see if I had been involved, which of course I had been. I have never been to Kent, nor been involved with any schools there. Grebot Donnelly had no idea we were doing this project and I had no idea that they were working with the schools involved in the workshop.
.
It really is a small world in education - especially for those involved in 21st century education..... building professional relationships and maintaining positive contacts will always help develop a cohesive approach built on open high quality communication.....
.
You never know when you will meet up again with anyone you meet - it's a great feeling, the world really is 'shrinking"!
