I have been discussing with a close friend Christine Usyak from YIS, about getting all of the ICT related staff in the international school around Tokyo together for a formal meeting. We have discussed this all school year and never really got around with distractions from the many side projects we have both been doing.
We decided we needed something after seeing how successful the librarians in the Kanto Plains have been with initiatives such as Sakura Medal and job-a-likes. So finally this Spring we decided to turn our vision into reality.
We had our first Tokyo Edutech meeting on Saturday the 22nd of May. We had over 14 participants from more than 7 school on the day and covered some excellent topics. We set futures goals for the group and shared a lot. It was hugely successful, much more than we expected and I personally can’t wait for the next one on October 1st at Nishimachi International School headed up by Shaun Kirkwood.
Make sure you make it down to the next meeting. For full information, sign up, future meets, minutes of events, etc. visit:
