The Times Educational Supplement, Thursday August 23rd 2008- Report by Craig Kind


Top UK teacher Maryam Mckenna is ready to play a key role as the British teaching community embraces its bright and buoyant future. One giant cyber-leap for teachers everywhere, the new social network and resource sharing platform for teachers, TESconnect, is set to radically change the educational landscape. An impassioned source at TES said the following:
"Hundreds of teachers and everyone here at TES have worked tirelessly to get TESconnect to where it is now, but more importantly, our efforts would all amount to nothing were it not for people like Maryam and countless others.
Fellow TES members are particularly thrilled at the prospect of connecting to and hearing some of Maryam ’s own resources and ideas.

In an interview, one member told us:
"Maryam has been doing some really good things up to now, so I’m looking forward to comparing notes and sharing ideas and resources. Teaching can often feel extremely classroom-centric, so connecting with teachers like Maryam and their ideas breathes new life into your own approach."

With the start of the new school year just around the corner, the launch couldn’t have come at a better time. And with the new platform already in place, Maryam should take no time whatsoever settling in.
