Perhaps I told you before that I work in the primary education. Not as a teacher but as an administrative assistant to a general manager of 10 primary schools. Mostly I am concerned with the financial part of all these schools.
Today we had a day for all people working for these 10 schools as all our schools will have a whole new computer network as from January 1st.
Each employee, for 99% teachers in primary education, visited three different workshops to discover the possibilities of the new computer concept in the educational programme we offer.
Even though I am not a teacher there was enough to learn. I visited three workshops: how to make a picture book using powerpoint, how to use the computer with history lessons and how to use the interactive whiteboard. This last workshop was my favourite. In fact it makes me wish I followed my job ambition when I was a little girl. I always wanted to become a teacher. What possibilities there are now using the internet. So great and useful!!
We all had lunch together and the catering did a great job.
The day ended with a cabaretshow about education. It was hilarious and a good end to an educational day.
