The mission of our organization is to transform education by developing in teachers the desire to become life-long learner, collaborators and inspirational motivators of each other and our students. We believe this can be accomplished through fostering creativity and allowing our students to explore their own passions through the use of technology and the development of personal learning networks. Come and join our community. This wiki is a complementory space where community members can post projects, lectures, online resources and other materials to share with the community. We also offer educational courses that help both teachers and students integrate technology into their life.
