  • Thanks once more Carla - I found this while looking for something on your "Digital Swarming" which so resonates to spreading the online practices to local f2f teaching communities. I should have guessed you'd moved on ;-) Love the waves too :-)

  • Wow, Graeme. That was fast! Yes! The idea is to talk about this energy of waves that can reverberate throughout a community when we decide to take hold of our own PD. It was nice and the audience was really receptive. See you soon!
