Greetings from Yokohama- I hope 2010 is treating you well so far. Thanks again for coming to YIS last month- although with it being before the holidays, it seems a lot longer ago than that- sorry to be slow with this update.
I hope you have had a chance to incorporate some of the learning from Gini's presentations into your teaching. It's certainly developed our thinking here in a number of ways. Let's keep connected with each other, and keep sharing ideas. One of my big learnings from the day was that we are all very fragmented, working as we do in ones and twos in our own individual schools. Even without Gini, there was clearly a lot of talent and experience to in the room before we started!
As you may remember from my initial e-mails for the workshop, I mentioned that Paul Ketko, Elementary Principal at Nagoya International School, has very kindly made a web-page for the event to help us keep the collaboration going. If you check out the link below, you will see that he has added Gini's powerpoints as well as some other resources. Please keep the link bookmarked, and keep checking it out- there are still more resources to be added. Also, if you have other materials to share, then send them on to Paul- firstname.lastname@example.org

Thanks again to you all for your collaboration, and thanks especially to Paul for making such a great resource for us to share.
