I have of course been suffering already from the thought of having to return my Mac to the school I am leaving soon. My Mac and I have been inseparable since birth... it's birth, back in March! Our relationship is a beautiful thing! It got me to thinking...
In Tokelau I will need a laptop to help me organise my lessons and assessment. My class this year have loved blogging and having a real audience for their writing. I thought, 'Why not set up a class blog in Tokelau, and get the students communicating with schools in New Zealand?!' It would give the students in Tokelau such a wider view of their world. They are currently so isolated, but over the past few years have been brought online.
I have emailed Renaissance Education (RED) to see if they would have some Christmas spirit and donate some ex-lease MacBooks to each of the three schools in Tokelau. I hope to hear back from them soon with a positive result! Fingers crossed...!
Do any of you have any ideas about the possible use of ICT on a small remote tropical island?!!
