International - Join HMIE global classroom

29th January 2010 at 00:00

HMIE has issued an invitation to teachers and pupils to join it online on February 4, when it will take part in a "global classroom learnover" involving Anderson High in Shetland and its seven international partner schools - in Sweden, Czech Republic, Germany, Australia, USA, New Zealand and South Africa, which span four continents.

Graham Donaldson, senior chief inspector, will take part in the discussions, scheduled for 1-2.30pm and 7.30-8.30pm. The "learnover" coincides with the launch of HMIE's good practice guide, Learning Together International Education: responsible, global citizens.

Mr Donaldson said: "Scotland's future economic prosperity requires an education system that will develop the kind of knowledge, skills and attributes our people need to equip them personally, socially and economically. High-quality learning experiences in international education, such as those outlined in this guide, will help us to turn this aspiration into reality for all young people in Scotland."
