ICT-use surveys in Georgia and Estonia

Taming the spaces

Tiger Leap and Deer Leap are two organizations that coordinate ICT education in partnering countries - Estonia and Georgia. In Estonia the most useful method of implementing ICT into subject lessons for teaching ICT competences is individual projects. We envision that the rising trend of evaluating ICT-competences in Estonia will be portfolio-method. As an additional task i have done this year some surveys and book-writing related to ICT teaching.

Preparing for Estonia

Chris Corrigan

I’m off to Estonia on Saturday to run an Art of Hosting workshop with Toke Moeller and Piret Jeedas. But the real highlight of the trip will be the time spent in Estonia, a nation that has one of the largest traditional repertoires of folk songs. From that current flowed the courage and will to establish political sovereignty that resulted in the self-liberation of Estonia from more that 50 years of occupation by the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany.

netWorked Learning:connecting formal learning to the world

Nancy White

This morning at the ungodly hour of 4:30 am PDT (GMT -7) I shared some of my ideas about connecting the formal learning in universities to the wider, networked world to a group of learning professionals at Tartu University, in Estonia. This was part of School - From Teaching Institution to Learning Space which took place April 02 - 03, 2009 at the Estonian University of Life Sciences conference centre (Kreutzwaldi 1A, Tartu), Estonia.

Art of Hosting, the chaordic dance and what we can learn from life

Chris Corrigan

A couple of years ago – back when I had long hair – I was doing some work in Estonia, where I was part of a team of people that were leading a week long workshop learning about leadership, complexity, dialogue and belonging.

Chris Corrigan

Narrative ecology course ending and restarting

Taming the spaces

we write narratives intensively, simultaneous with French students’ explorations of Estonia. From end of January until mid March we I and Anatole-Pierre Fuksas run a course “Ecology of Narratives&#. This course was composed as a design experiment aiming to try out what happens with narratives and what we perceive in hybrid ecologies. Course ‘window’ in the ‘Ecology of Narratives blog’ gives some overview, what happened.

Journeying to simplicity and reengagement

Chris Corrigan

This is my second trip to Estonia and it is perhaps not my last one. As beautiful as the Art of Hosting Learning Village was, for me the journey was also about exploring something deeper here in Estonia. Here in Estonia, it has felt like I have gone through several gates. I am leaving Estonia for Turkey this afternoon with the thought that this simplicity of practice is what will renew me.

Into the Estonian countryside

Chris Corrigan

Leaving Tallinn this afternoon, we headed for Estonia’s west coast to a retreat centre on the edge of the Matsalu Nature Preserve. Estonia reminds me a lot of southern Ontario, even though we’re at 58 degrees north, almost as far north as the Yukon border.

Common Sense and the Gen Y Guide to Web 2.0 at Work

Nancy White

A couple of weeks ago this was a key point to a presentation I made to educators in Estonia. Sacha Chua’s The Gen Y Guide to Web 2.0 at Work has a few things going for it. First, it is a great use of simple visuals. See you CAN draw ! Second, it has a sense of humor. Third, it does a great job of communicating key ideas in 14 simple slides about how to use social media usefully as one transitions from school to work.

Cruising Old Tallinn and reflecting on Estonian history

Chris Corrigan

Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, is cool and quiet this morning. It was after 9:00pm when we got in and the late hop to Tallinn didn’t leave until 11:45, so I caught up on Skype - Estonia’s most famous high tech export! - with friends in North America who were beginning their Sundays. Just knowing the recent history of that place deeply tuned me in to the sense of Estonia. There is a stiff breeze off the Baltic Sea and the sky is grey and overcast.

Art of Participatory Leadership, day two

This group we are working with in Estonia is cracking a lovely design for a six month learning journey around hosting, harvesting and participatory leadership.
