Last weekend I was on a trip from Berlin to Cologne in Germany. The flight was just 50 minutes. Then we still had to take the train from the airport to Cologne. In Cologne was an event where 35 teachers from Germany, Austria and Switzerland met each other at the SMART Headquarter from Germany.
The teachers shared their ideas and experiences with the Smartboard. The other teachers were very fascinated about the development of our project and what we have already done. Some other teachers like the idea of our project and have started similar projects.
One of my highlights was the Monster Game invented by the teacher Jose Luis Castano from Spain. It is a very huge board (2 m x 3 m) where the whole class can play in teams against each other. They have to play several games from the SMART Notebook Software in order to win the board game and answer different prepared questions. It is a combination of a board game and games with the Smartboard.
By the way one or two women fell in love with me 😉
On Sunday we flew with the plane back to Berlin. It was a fantastic trip.
SMARTee visited the Didacta in Stuttgart on Friday and Saturday. It is the biggest education exhibition in Germany with many thousands visitors. We also met other teachers from Germany and Austria who learn with the Smartboard in their classroom. They were so excited and surprised to meet SMARTee there. One of SMARTee’s highlights at the Didacta was to meet so many monsters from SMART. They all were so friendly and enjoyed the photo session with me.
SMARTee is in Germany, with Stefan.SMARTee took the ICE from Berlin to Stuttgart. The ICE is the fastest train in Germany with a maximum speed of 330 km/h.
Love getting to spend time with my SEEs! Now I´m off again. I am going to Stefan in Germany for a conference and after that to Amber to visit her school – Phoenix Day School For The Deaf.
