This week I went up to Edgware to take part in a teaching-enrichment day at the North London Collegiate School. I was asked to do a session exploring how ideas and issues arising from studying the reception of Pompeii might enrich the way in which the teachers there teach Pompeii to their students. It was really interesting sharing ideas and approaches. Of course, I shaped the discussion around this project and its key themes but, in this context, the potential of our environment has an added interest. NLCS have recently opened a partner school in South Korea and are about to introduce Classics to the curriculum there, sending out a Classics teacher (funnily enough, Judy from Bristol Grammar School who has worked with us a year or so ago) for the first time. Open Sim here offers not only a data- and experience- rich environment but also a space in which students at both schools might work together online in completely collaborative ways. Thank you to NLCS for inviting me and to the staff who took part and very best wishes to Judy in her new post.
