Hi, Adina


I am a French teacher in North Carolina, from Iasi, Romania. Very honored to be from the same country as yourself.

Hi Adina, I will be in London for the google teachers academy the first week of April and would like to visit a tech savvy school in the area to share ideas. At least one other attendee at GTA has expressed an interest in doing the same. Is your school open on the first or second? Do you know of any schools in the area that are tech savvy and might be open?

Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated, thanks,Jen

Hi Adina

I thought I would share with you a global student project taking place right now as I thought you would be interested.

The #world11kids project is part of the UN's ITUWorld Conference taking place in Geneva, Switzerland in a few weeks time.

We are inviting 10,000 kids from around the world to design solutions to the toughest of world problems and put challenges to the world leaders who will gather at the conference.

We are looking for schools to get involved and thought you might be able to help.

You can find out more here

best wishes

Tom Barrett
