Dear colleagues,

2006 is coming to an end with all its changes and memories. 2007 is at hand with hopes, projects and new opportunities. 2007 is also a landmark in the history of the European Union. Fifty years ago a small group of people with a vision were giving the final touches to a concept that has allowed us to live in peace, travel, expand and share across borders.

Does the EU still have a vision? Are there still people who convey and embody those wonderful ideas and values? Good questions.

Some of you may have noticed that I jumped from number 118 to number 1. I am happy to tell you that I have left the network I worked for over the last 10 years, but I still feel it is my mission to inform and help you find partners, .so it is still me, but starting from scratch again. If we stay together we may have a chance to make a positive difference, nobody else will.

Let me know what you are doing, what you feel and I will be more than happy to convey your creativity to our large unique network of teachers. A lot of good things are going on everywhere, little projects, big projects, good quality initiatives and we must share them with each other.

Last but not least, "Merry Christmas" and "Happy Winter Break" to all of you and see you again next year!

With you all the way,

Career Information Learning Objects, Australia

Very far away from Europe, our friends from Australia have always been way ahead in terms of technologies in education. This is one small example and it is related to career guidance. Check these learning objects you're your
pupils. The texts are in English, so why not start a project on how to help pupils find their way after school?





Assisted Projects, Quebec - Canada

The Prof-Inet assisted projects are made for those of you, learners or speakers of French, who need help to implement projects. Schools from many French speaking countries situated on all continents take part in these projects. They are designed for pupils aged 7 to 12.

Take a look and trust the team, they are very good.



The Image of the Other in Spanish

'The Image of the Other' is an example of a collaborative project in which teachers and their pupils use the Internet and this material as a starting point for the most crucial part in a collaborating process: the dialogue in which you exchange information, data, viewpoints, etc., on many different subjects with colleagues and peers abroad.

The Image of the other is supported by a very good teachers guide. It was designed by people among the best experts of international school collaboration.
