The Learning Renaissance

International Learning Collaborations: What Can Be Achieved?

I’m generally a little sceptical of the potential of information and educational technologies to bring about decisive improvements in learning. My position has been forged over many years working with educational technologies when the technology has outstripped the capacity of the teachers to use it creatively.

Every so often a collaboration comes about which shows sheer genius in the vision and scope of its conception and execution.

This work, from friend and collaborator Phil Rooke, is a case in point. It links schools in New South Wales, Australia, and Nairobi, Kenya to a mutually beneficial conclusion. The result is a celebration of music, the basis for a wider appreciation of two diverse cultures, and an example of how to use educational technology, and wider communication technology, purposefully.

More than that, it is a celebration of joy… and we all need a lot more of that in our lives… Enjoy!

Keep up the great work Phil and the team responsible for this work.


About educationalist04

I'm convinced we can, as a species, do much better than this if we set our minds to being much more positive and productive towards our fellow humans. The solution is learning - creating independent and autonomous learners who can problem solve, innovate and create a better more equitable and sustainable world. My books, Future Proof Your School and Re-Examining Success together with this blog, explore how better learning outcomes for all can be achieved.
