Creative Learning Lab

Very interesting site with innovative ideas.
One of them is the interactive sandbox
Sand 2.0 is an idea of former intern Karim Amrani, who added colour and technology to the old fashoned sandbox. By projecting a new layer on top of the sand with a beamer and using an interactive whiteboard pen, children can give their sand creations an extra dimension.

Blogging in Europe

Karmele Pereda from Begonazpi Ikastola in Bilbao initiated
a very interesting Comenius Project.
In the application was written:

This project has arisen as an answer to the necessities of
each school implicated in sharing experiences, ideas,
activities and stories related to European culture.
The project is focused towards the idea of developing an
effective way in which all schools participating are able
to communicate and share activities and we believe that
the way is the use of BLOGS.
The activities will be supervised by Dalton International.

It is a great pleasure for me to contribute and to work with
schools from Czech Republic, England, Ireland, Poland and
Spain in this project. Dalton education will be the common
tool for redefining the approach to teaching for all the
participating schools.


Thanks to Jenny Hill from Education Leeds.
She gevae me the tip to find a great site:

Management training

Together with Paul Bruijn we could
work last week again with a
group of directors from Dalton
schools during a two days seminar.
A formula with a new certificate:
"Dalton director" as a reward
after following 6 days of training
and several days of intervision.
These days give always inspiration.

A clear vision

A Dalton teacher must have a sharp vision on education.
