Here at YIS, we are so excited to see the fantastic conversations that #beyondlaptops has started among the participants and beyond! It’s great to see that our two-day event has continued to inspire school, country, regional and worldwide collaboration.
As an open and collaborative school community, we would like to offer a few opportunities to continue thinking, sharing and creating together:
- Let’s make this #beyondlaptops blog collaborative! Any participants (or other interested educators) who would like to share their reflections through this forum are welcome, please let us know if you’re interested either by contacting Kim, or leaving a comment here.
- There’s been great interest in sharing essential documents from our individual schools to help create a repository of documentation and great ideas. #beyondlaptops participant and YIS teacher, Rebekah Madrid, has created this wiki to help us compile anything and everything that the #beyondlaptops community feels would be relevant. Join the wiki so we can create a home-base for all of the essential documents we create!
- James MacDonald, our YIS Headmaster, and our admin team are committed to hosting #beyondlaptops again next year, and we’re already thinking about perhaps hosting two: one in the first semester to get us started as a close-knit community, and a second one in April/May to continue the conversations and push us even further.
We have another great project in the works that we think our #beyondlaptops participants will be very interested in hearing about… More on that soon!
As always, looking forward to collaborating, learning and creating together!
