Meeting at last - Ewan McIntosh
I was interested to read Ewan McIntosh's blog on schools buildings as 'Influencers of future practice, not responsive to existing practice' - he raise many excellent points in it. I am also obviously very pleased that he has linked to this blog during the course of it.
Ewan is one of Europe’s foremost experts in digital media for public services, particularly in education and has been a significant influence on teachers in the UK and abroad. He and I have 'talked' over a couple of years, by phone, by email and through blog comments. Whilst I have 'met him at conferences, I enjoyed the opportunity to spend a couple of days talking to him at the cefpi World Conference in San Jose last week. Inspirational and fascinating.It's bizarre that we have to go all the way to the West Coast to do so though. Thanks for the mention though Ewan.
I'm lucky to work with some really great people, who are contributing to the education process through experience, thought and experience. No wonder things ARE getting better despite what some people are saying!
