Deze week waren de landencoördinatoren van het Global Teenager Project in Nederland. Diverse foto's staan er al op de website van ICT&E, maar ik was zelf aanwezig bij de receptie t.g.v. het 10 jaar bestaan van GTP. Daarvoor heb ik een presentatie gegeven van de nieuw te bouwen website. Wat is GTP:
Imagine how lively lessons would be if pupils and teachers regularly went online to discuss issues such as the rainforest with pupils in Bolivia or the impact of globalisation or HIV/AIDS with pupils in Ghana and Surinam.Enkele foto's van de receptie:
Image The global teenager project has already turned this vision into an everyday reality for 8000 pupils from 32 countries, and new schools are asking to join constantly. Since it was first launched in 1999, the GTP has grown from 3 classes to over 250. The result is a rapidly expanding virtual network of secondary schools in both the developing and developed world and an upcoming generation of information-literate, knowledge-oriented, culturally-aware individuals.
As of May 8th 2008 the Global Teenager Project is being coordinated by The Round Table Foundation (The Netherlands), GTP project coordinators are Mr. Bob Hofman and Mrs. Eliane Metni. See the news article on the IICD website.
