This is my first blog… I am an Art + Drama teacher at a school in Nottingham.
I have been asked to research an art project for a Brazil theme week with the year 7 group ( 11-12 year olds).
I am enormously impressed by the work of Oscar Niemeyer and think that his work and ideals would be exciting and inspiring for my youngsters. Does anyone know if I can email his office to show the children’s work to the team, or to shout hello from 170 children to the great Oscar?

Just remember, we can’t just wait for “old, technologically-clueless people” to die off if we want to have enough savvy teachers to teach the next generation digital literacy. “Digital Natives” don’t just naturally learn to use the Internet without help — and imagine what happens when they end up under the tutelage of older people who really don’t know what they’re doing?
