This time last year I missed out on the google teacher academy because I was too scared to even apply. After hearing all the fantastic stories about it I really wish I had, even if I hadn’t got onto it, as at least I could’ve said I’d tried. I’m now desperately hoping they decide to do another one in the uk soon!
Because of this I decided I needed to be a little more confident and just go for things, which I think I am managing to do quite well so far – I attended BETT and the associated unconferences for the first time this year and met up with lots of fab people and I also went to lob11 in Ireland in the last half term break and again had a fab time. So when I heard about the Microsoft partners in learning summer camp ( which I followed on twitter last year) I decided to give it a shot and apply. Needless to say I was dancing around my school like a loon when I found out this week that I’d got a place and am very excited about going and learning lots of new things with lots of fab people once again. It’s going to be great 🙂
