I visited the University of Florida in Gainesville

I visited Pofessor Dr. Swapna Kumar at the University of Florida in Gainesville in November 2012. We visited a school in St. Petersburg which implemented iPads (Shorecrest Preparatory School).  Very inspiring.... and I see some similiarities to the Odder Denmark 1:1 ipad project. For example,  a very creative atmosphere among the teachers and students.  At the UiF in Gainesville, I participated at a course organized from the  Educational Technology Progam, http://education.ufl.edu/educational-technology/ at the College of Education (UF, Florida) where Swapna Kumar, http://plaza.ufl.edu/swapnak/ conducts fantastic research studies together with her doctoral students. I also could visit a 2nd school which uses iPads: PK Yonge school in Gainesvile http://www.pkyonge.ufl.edu/. "Schools without boarder". The new building is constructed in a way that they don't have doors.  I've been invited to the Internatiol Day. I gave a presentation about Swedish schools and teacher education in Sweden (see photo). And finnaly, I also met Chuck Dziuban from the University of Central Florida in Orlando. Gainesville was fantastic!
