Northern Greece EU Education Summit
On Friday I will be in Thessalonika, in the North of Greece, presenting a workshop for educators from 20 different EU countries, as part of the eTwinning EU programme that aims to create a cohesive, support network for those working in education, across Europe.
This is part of the broader EU Erasmus programme (http://goo.gl/vR5KF9
) that looks to increase the flow of information and experience across all EU countries.
It is exciting because I have never seen Thessalonika (it is the 2nd largest city in Greece) and talking to educators across the EU presents an opportunity to increase awareness across the board of the impact of social media, semantic search, digital identity and content creation.
Plus I will get to HIRL with +Nikolaos Bogioglou
(even if I have to absail down the outside of the hotel in the middle of the night to find the time ;) ).
It is exciting to see initiatives like this happen in countries across the EU. I was in Poland just a couple of weeks ago at the 25th +MakoLab S.A.
anniversary and its semantic technologies conference and the zest they had was simply incredible.
