21st century learning: past projects promoted internationally

Professor Heppell discussing Cayman Islands projects as part of the key note speech.
It is really quite humbling really to be part of an audience of an international education conference and have several past projects that I was deeply involved in from start to finish feted as just plain good practice. These included converting a large school to a 'schools within schools' model, international ICT connectivity between schools, the consultative process involved in stakeholder engagement for education transformation and more!!
.
As part of his key note speech, Prof. Stephen Heppell at the Annual cefpi Conference, referred to projects all round the world. Frequently however, he came back to projects in the Cayman Islands which were part of the holistic approach to the total education transformation process.
.
These references have caused a real stir here with literally hundreds of people from a number of countries wanting to know far more about the process and the designs for the new schools.
.
It is important that Cayman find a way to manage all these requests for information, because, (although I am biased), it is a very important story to tell and lots want to hear it!
