Just a quick post to say that there will be another Google Teacher Academy in the UK this year. Full details can be found here: http://www.google.com/educators/gta.html but it is well worth applying. I found it to be a full-on day of innovation, enthusiasm and ideas with some of the best teachers in the country.I loved every second of it and I would urge you to apply if you get chance.
My blog posts about it are here: http://ianaddison.net/?s=gtauk
Edit: It’s cringeworthy now, but here is my video from two years ago…I must say that I wasn’t going to apply and it wasn’t until the last minute (literally completing it with half an hour to spare) that I finished my video. I had intended using Animoto for a 60second video until I realised that my account only gave me 30 seconds so I needed to make a few and chop them together. The video is painful to watch, but it got me in, so I must have done something right?!?
