Can you help Shel write his book?

  Shel in the Chapter House 
  Originally uploaded by Edublogger.

Shel Israel came over to Scotland in October on my invitation to see how social media had started to transform education in some corners of our small country, and how education was perhaps leading the way in the field - not, for a change, business.

He's now looking for some help in setting the scene for his book, Global Neighbourhoods, in which the Scottish escapade will feature. Does his initial opener make sense to you, especially if you've never heard of social media? Is there something missing? Is the example he gives reflective of what is going on in your part of Scotland. Please do head over and leave your remarks. He'll appreciate it.

Suitably, the photo is from the Chapter House in Dryburgh Abbey - fitting, no?

Module Masterclass

Do you worry that your school or district could better harness its people, digital technology or physical space? Do you want some actionable inspiration, a mentor for a learning journey with your staff?

In a keynote or masterclass we can give them concrete ideas based on experience, enthusiasm fired by a vision of what can be, and backup before and after to make it happen for them.
