*Digitale Inkompetenz: Schüler fällen vernichtende Urteile über ihre Lehrer*Es ist ein Trauerspiel und auch wenn dies wohl aus Sicht der Schueler nicht unbedingt objektiv ist, so habe ich persoenlich in den letzten 15 Jahren richtig viel aus beiden Ecken gehoert. Der digitale Klassenraum liegt mir seit den ersten Mini-ITX PCs am Herzen und wenn ich sehe, was in dieser Zeit passiert ist, dann wird mir Angst und Bange! 
HIER verliert Deutschland den Anschluss. Hier fangen wir an, eine komplette Generation zu verlieren und nicht richtig auf die zukuenftigen Herausforderungen vorzubereiten. Dabei ist das verdammt noch mal keine Raketenwissenschaft. Aber es ist auch kein Trend, der irgendwann mal vorbeigeht und um den man sich immer noch in ein paar Jahren kuemmern kann...

43% aller Schüler halten Lehrer im Umgang mit neuen Medien für inkompetent, nur 8% fühlen sich auf die Arbeits- und Lebenswelt vorbereitet.

The Connect with China Collaborative kicks off in September. Are you ready to join us?
Learning Collaboratives are part of my 'Moonshot' ideas based on "How might we flatten the learning environment to include connected and collaborative practices for learners everywhere to deepen understanding about the world?"
Connect with China will bring students and teachers together from across the world to learn collaboratively. It has a focus on Chinese language and culture.
Join the pilot today!

My daughter chose Severine as her wedding photographer. From the first meeting on, Severine was incredibly attentive and willing to personalize the creation of our memories through her photography. In the weeks and months before we shared with Severine specific shoot ideas and family poses via Pinterest boards and chats. The day of the wedding, Severine and her team were professional and simply (unobtrusively) there, taking incredible photographs of the special day. We were in awe when we received the photographs. Severine has "the eye" and was able to put herself into our shoes to capture our family's story. An added bonus was the sneak preview of a few selected photos the very night the wedding was over! I can't recommend Severine enough.
