2014 in the UK… 6 days in …

Thanks for your enthusiasm. This project starts a new year on a positive note. we now have almost 50 on the mailing list. The twitter account has exceeded 270 followers.

So initial ideas:

– Twitter #globalsolo list – this is now done and each new follower is added to the globalsolo  members list.

– A spreadsheet / database so you can filter by age group / subject / country … To look at others work (under consideration)

-more regular chats following initial #sologlobalchat led by @aknill and @aliceleung in April 2013. Possibly use the #edchat model with different time zones to be more convenient.

– #teachtweet video based events like those used by #ukedchat in 2013.

– record of Teachmeet presentations given globally

– share ideas how #solotaxonomy fits into new national models For curriculum – this is relevant with discussions about levels going in England. There has been work on this from  members in New Zealand and Australia.

…. Your ideas – an about section with contact details has been added to the blog and essentially to share enthusiasm and make friends across the planet who love this idea and how our classes respond to it – thank you to our contributors in the first week.

Welcome to #globalsolo

Welcome to #globalsolo. This is an idea that has been forming in 2013 and now I feel it needs to start. I have been using solo taxonomy since I came across it in May 2012. I have blogged extensively about this and presented at a range of Teachmeets in the UK too. See my blog  Mishmashlearning.wordpress.com.  I have built up a truly global PLN through Twitter and I would like all practitioners in whatever type of training / education or age group taught to have a central point where ideas, resources, demonstrations can be shared.

Initial organisation has been some tweets on 31/12/13 with interested tweeters direct mailing (DM) their email details to my personal account.

We have:
This blog – globalsolo.wordpress.com

E mail at globalsolo14@gmail.com

Twitter at @globalsolo

I will be putting together a mailing list and will use the blog rather than a newsletter as originally envisaged to keep people informed.

All ideas are welcomed – this is not for me, but truly to get solo taxonomy used widely but to show our various government minders how teachers can and do network to support the children / adults we teach / train.
