The 10-day Place-Based Education Workshop kicked off at the Damphu Higher Secondary School on Saturday, January 11. Twenty-four teachers are in attendance and do represent each and every dzongkhag in Bhutan.
After several long days of travel, I arrived in Bhutan at about 11:30 am local time on Thursday, January 10. If you are interested in the travel details, I wrote up some “Route Talk” below (thanks to This American Life for that idea!).
From January 9 – 24, 2014, I will be returning to Bhutan and meeting Kate Bodey (faculty from Teton Science Schools who has been traveling in India for the past 3 weeks). Kate and I will be continuing Teton Science Schools’ partnership with the Ministry of Education in Bhutan as supported by the Peterson Education Initiative.
