    bilingual education platform with wonderful material and liks This is a worlwide platform dealing with bilingual educational issues in US and Europe. Lots of people sharing ideas!!
    Thanks for telling us more about you, Carolina. And thanks for the great links as well :) -Lucinda
    Hello,
    I am Lili from El Ejido, on the other side of Sierra Nevada. Today we heard in the news, that the government is reducing our pay 5% ! So the economic crisis of Europe is starting to be taken seriously in Spain.
    just some final thoughts about our experience:
    The virtual discussions were very interesting and challenging for me.
    In the beginning, I got lost reading the chat, the white-board and listening to the audio: it is difficult for me to concentrate on one content using English for communication.
    The articles, the topics, the different points of view of the participants, the different forms of interpretation of the world, mean an enrichment for me.
    Maybe it would have been interesting to use more the Moodle forum in order to deepen the topics treated (although I know how limited we are in time).
    So, I am very glad to have been able to participate and want to thank all of you for sharing your knowledge and thinking.

    Euro Challenge
    This is the Euro Challenge competition. It is available now in 12 states. You pick a country, an issue, and make recommendations. The country must be in the Euro Zone. It is a lot of work, but a lot of fun.

    Elluminate Session
    Reflections
    Lynda's Reflections:
    Positives:
    · getting to know some other teachers, from other locations in the world
    · feeling like I am not the only one thinking the way I do
    · opportunity to brainstorm on new ideas to use in the school
    · seeing the bigger picture of education, again, outside of the US. It is too easy to become forgetful of other systems, other views outside of our geographical boundaries
    · different persons or small groups presenting on a topic each week – offers another perspective on the issue
    Negatives:
    -would have liked, for myself, to contribute more frequently, and to follow up on chat conversations week after week
    -might have dealt with some more “close-to-school” related topics, as opposed to bigger issues, to see where and how the different parties could be of help to one another
    -sometimes the sessions felt a little too long, and sometimes a little too short. Perhaps it could vary based on the topic at hand, and how much prior conversation on the topic appears in the wiki or the moodle site before the day of the actual presentation
    -because this course was not necessarily for a grade for everyone, the exchanges were not as fruitful, outside of class, in between the sessions.. Maybe in order to receive a certificate, not only do we need to attend the sessions, and lead a class, but also participate in the forums to a minimum…
