yes, i know – Kate Booth is not offically a teacher because she is working on her degree down under – nevertheless, Kate is a teacher in the truest sense!
if you have no idea who Kate Booth is and why she is a Officially Certified Enerific, here’s a post on her and what she is doing with OpenSim at a primary (elementary) school in the land of Oz (actually in New South Wales where Babe was filmed!) =)
her class went nuts for sim-on-a-stick with some students wanting to continue building through their lunch and recess!
she has totally geeked out and has gone bananas loading up new sim-on-a-sticks, complete with kid’s avatars (see a post on that here). i believe she was probably a geek before OpenSim judging by her reading of Nobel prize winning American authors and she is certainly a bona fide geek with her usb drives below!
she’s the kind of geek that makes a positive impact on the world (both real and virtual) and that any school and student would benefit from having. keep your passion fueled Ms Booth and keep making a difference!
hats off and a pip-pip to Ms Booth and her innovation in the classroom! she’s the kind of person that truly impacts students!
