    BAD EDUCATION-BAD WORLD
    Like you ,everyone living in the world is a survivor of some kind of violence. That is why my two books of "Peace Technology" &"Peace TimeCalendar" have been published by authorhouse,Bloomington,Indiana,USA which can be obtained on line from authorhouse.com.Read the books and change the world through blending of "SCIENCE OF MATTER" with "SCIENCE OF SPIRITUALITY" so that all world citizens will be winners and survivors.Promote Peace Education from mother's womb to highest level of education and incorporate PEACE & GREEN TECHNOLOGY in all kinds of professions and human activities.Looking at today's world,one must do this before she/he leaves this world.
    PROMOTE THIS AND IDEAS CONTAINED IN MY TWO BOOKS TO SAVE YOUR/OUR FUTURE GENERATION. Can you? If you do it, you will be blessed.

    Dear Julie,

    With you amazing qualifications and experience, I've decided to direct my inquiry in your direction. I'm an EFL teacher at a GEPS primary school in Vienna. GEPS is an acronym for Global Education Primary School. Sadly, though, the school is far from global and that is my mission. I'm working on a global education handbook for the whole GEPS program and I want to include a section on international school partnerships/links. Recently a couple of progressive Austrian teachers at my school have asked me to organize, help them with finding a school to collaborate with. However, I'm embarrassed to say, the computers at our school desparately need an upgrade (we have no IT/Media Specialist) - at the moment our browers are slow that YouTube is not available! Anyway, my question for you. What basic tools/software/equipment would a school need in order to be able to collaborate with other schools globally? Each classroom has 2 computers.

     

    Also, could you recommend a website/resource which offers definitions/a lexicon about the seemingly plethora of IT words/apps? Nobody in my school has a clue as to what most of these terms mean:

    Web.2.0, Flatclassroom, widget, PLE, Google
    Apps for Education, VoiceThread, NIng, wiki.......etc.

     

    If this is all too much for you, just say so. Any recommendations are appreciated. Thank you!

    Warm regards,

    Janice
