On Friday the 30th October, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed involving the South-Western Victoria Region and the Daegu District using ZOOM videoconferencing.
In attendance at the Australian end, were Matt Dunkley (Director, South West Victoria Region, DET), Mr Soo Hwan Kang (Director of Education, Embassy of the Republic of Korea in Sydney), Ms Lynn Davie (Director Digital Learning and STEM, DET), Mrs Marg Orme (International Division, DET), Jo Tate (Senior Project Officer, Digital Learning and STEM, DET), and a number of representatives from schools involved in the Global LYNCs project. The dramatic backdrop of Port Phillip Bay was an added bonus!
Representatives from South Korea included Woo Tong-Ki (Superintendent at Daegu Metropolitan Office of Education), Kim Young-Tak, Seo Jeong-Ha, and principals, students, and teachers from all six schools involved in the Daegu Pilot Program of the Global LYNCs project.
This exciting development was welcomed by Project Coordinators and participating schools. We thank Daegu office for compiling a wonderful video featuring some schools in the project engaged in telecommunication activities.
