Welcome to the Learning Circle "Echoes from the past, Poems for the future 2"




We are thrilled to finally have a go with the Echoes project; he're some questions, we thought it would help you to list them, including the answers.

Please note:

Dear Learning Circle participants,

It is with great pleasure that, even though the time line indicates that the Learning Circle has ended, we see new poems arriving in the wiki almost every day.

In the past week we were in contact with the ACSN (Association for Canadian Studies in The Netherlands) to discuss what would be the best way to publish the poems created by the students and offer thepublication as gift to the Dutch and Canadian blue helmets in Afghanistan. And teacher Maurits Kamman from Canisius School in Almelo, will join with 2 students on the iEARN World Conference in Barrie, Canada from July 11th -17th to present an Echoes workshop. We will do our utmost best to hand a copy of the printed poems publication to veteran Danny McLeod, who's interviews by video conference are in this wiki.

Please be aware of the following:

-       If your students still have poems that are not posted in the wiki, please do so before June 25th so they can be included in the Echoes Publication

-       Unless you clearly express to us by email that your students works cannot be included, we will add all poems in the wiki in the publication

-       We will mention the names of the schools and (if indicated on the poems pages) the names of the students.

We’re open for any suggestions that can help us to present your students work in  the best way possible.

With regards, Bob and Ria.

We would like to thank all students and teachers for the amazing contributions.
We have ‘harvested’ all 200+ poems as off 1 pm today and are now in the design phase of the poem booklet. Changes/ contributions as off now are visible in the wiki, yet can no longer be added in the booklet. This booklet will become available as PDF. Also a copy the booklet will be presented by Dutch and Canadian students on July 12th during the opening session of the 2010 iEARN conference in Barrie, Ontario, Canada to Mr. and Mrs. Danny and Sheila McLeod from Kingston Ontario (see video conference in sidebar of the wiki).
With sincere greetings from Holland, Ria and Bob.

Bob & Ria,

Just thought I'd take a minute to complement you on all the changes I see in the site since the last project. I like all the graphics and other tweaks... it looks fantastic and is easy to navigate. Well done.

Dear Pieter-Jan, Amanda, Andrew, Rose-Marie, Stacey and Pieter, dear all,
Today I was a guest at St.-Canisius school in Tubbergen, where we did a 45 mins. web conference (Skype) with mr. Danny McLeod, a 87 year old veteran from Kinston, Ontario.
Amazing to see and hear how he connected to the students; he didn't knew a things of PC's (his own words) but he was thrilled to be connected to the Dutch students.
Soon more on this VC in a webcam and picture report... happy to have you all on board!! Greetings, form Dieren, Holland, Bob

I am in Orillia near Barrie on a student exchange programme.
Would be nice if I could get in touch with my partner from Barrie (next village) but do not know how.
Anyone out there with tips?
