Here we go again. And I'm looking forward
I'm a teacher in the European school af Bruxelles 1.
My subjects are integrated science (biology, physics and chemistry), human science (history and geography) and ICT. I've been here in Belgium for almost 7 years now.
I used to teach in Denmark where I worked a lot outdoors. We moved the classes to areas in a forrest or a former gravel pit. I love to teach that way. When I came to Bruxelles I had to stay indoors in a class room all day, every day. It was simply too boring, so I started to include the computer a lot.
As a teacher in Denmark I usually got a lot of new inspiration from team work, courses or network. Here in Bruxelles I was suddenly all alone. Even though I spent some of my holidays with my old networks, my inspiration started to lack. Then about a year ago, February 2012, I enrolled for a module (games and didactic design) of the Master in ICT and Learning in the University of AAlborg, Denmark. It was a great succes, and I wanted more. In August I signed up for Web2beviset, which is an online course about web 2.0 tools and how to use them didactic.
During the autumn I heard about Coursera and signed up for a few courses. I didn't have the time it required, so I was just a sort of lurking around.
But then I found the course E-learning and Digital Cultures. It seemed very interesting, and I decided I wanted to work properly with this. It became an amazing experience. I loved the course materials as well as the inspiring communities around it. When the course ended a few weeks ago, I was more than ready to start all over again. So when some of my edc peers wrote about #h817open, I signed up.
So here I am :)
