There is clearly a firm commitment from national and regional authorities to build a cutting edge digital infrastructure in South Korea. For me though, the main benefit was the opportunity to learn about a variety of software used by my colleagues such as Ustream and Prezi, and to be able to get to use them in a relevant and meaningful context. The opportunity to access training and further help with these is going to be an added bonus.
I’m particularly keen to explore using things like voicethread with some of my students who are reluctant writers.
Our school has only just recently gained tecnology status and this trip has provided me with some excellent links and contacts as well as ongoing training opportunities.
I have made a commitment to my SLT to cascade back to the rest of the staff team the skills and knowledge I’ve learnt.
