GI Learner start up meeting

For the next 3 years, I am going to be involved in a project with a number of EU partners (schools, universities and other partners) called GI-LEARNER. I am co-ordinating the involvement of my school, who is a partner in the project.

I've mentioned the project previously, but am currently in Bruges for the start-up meeting, where we have been discussing the practicalities of setting up the various events, activities, research and resource creation that is going to occupy us for the next few years, along with around 100 students of ages from 7-13.
