As well as being a learner who is committed to their own professional and personal learning I am very lucky to be able to work with a variety of other learners from around the world.
This includes Young People (mainly through my work at Grantown Grammar School and Leading Edge Expeditions) and adults (through a variety of consultancy and professional development opportunities that I offer to groups of staff).
Increasingly, I am working with more and more adults and young people online to deliver structured on-line opportunities. One of the courses that I enjoyed running the most last year was SMILE (Social Media in Learning and Education). This was a course funded by Facebook and run in partnership with the European SchoolNet.
I was the main tutor for the initial part of the course (the first eight weeks) but then course delegates went award to carry out their own Social Media Action Research Projects.
Last week some of the first students graduated!
Well done to all of you, you were a pleasure to work with!
If you are interested in how Social Media can be used in Education. Have a look at my on-line handout / resource page,which includes links to the SMILE Resources that we produced and a free ebook that I wrote for Bloxx.
PS: Hope you don't me posting your certificate Rositsa!
