An Ideas Exchange for Teachers
Friday 7th February, 2013 in Cyberspace
This Ideas Exchange is a chance for STAR4Africa to bring Teachers enrolled on School2School together, via Skype to find out how their peers how School2School partnerships are working, to share their experiences and offer advice. The STAR4Africa team will work with Teachers to develop an agenda for the session. This activity will be repeated in 2014, and would be interesting to compare the two years and analyse what Teachers have gained from the sessions and how this has impacted on their school partnerships.
