Introductions

Jeff and David go solo.

|Essential Question|

The SOS team paused tonight to celebrate the teachers in their schools who are making the shift. No philosophical discussion tonight, just concrete and practical instructional strategies.

David: See his Lessons Learned blog post where he shares information about teachers from Hsinchu International School and Hong Kong International School.

Jeff: Take a look at his links below from Shanghai American School.

    This is great information about what the international schools are doing. I work for a virtual school in Oregon and it is amazing what we are not doing and not exposing our students too. I am working on the big move to the international schools in 2010 so I will be listening to your pod-casts and researching as the job-fair time nears. I have about three idea’s for incorporating what you are talking about into the lower elementary classrooms on an international level. That is also something that I have not heard mentioned much on your pod-casts is the lower elementary use of technology. I will keep listening maybe you will hit on this in a later pod-cast. I have listened to three episodes so far!
