I  supported to a group of Swedish educators keen to listen and learn from us about how we use Mac technology in our schools.  It was indeed a unique opportunity  to network with teachers and educators from other countries. and to chat with them about the potential of using Macs in their own classrooms. 

The two day event was well structured and included visits to one of these CLCs: Brentford - David Hellier, Feltham  - Tony Peaty, Hackney  - (Portico CLC) Vivi Lachs , Wandsworth - Simon Elledge
