Try something new in your school

One of the most common questions I'm asked is...."How can I persuade other teachers in my school to try this out....." One answer might be to get your school involved in "RiskIT".
This is an opportunity to have a whole school initiative for 2 weeks in October to try something out within a culture that accepts that mistakes might happen and that experimentation can bring fantastic rewards.
the idea isn't to engage the ICT enthusiasts in your school but to encourage everyone to participate. Some of the stated goals are:

•Working in judgment-free environment


•Trying new things

•Experimenting

•Taking the fear out of technology

•Making teachers young again

•Mind over matter

•Taking control of the technology

•Learning new things

•Learning from students

•Not afraid of failure, but learn from it
