Bett 2014: Lavish Lexicon Lesson Plan
Annemieke Akkermans, Primary Teacher and Coordinator, Digital Learning
Based in Berlin and working as a teacher at an international school, Annemieke Akkermans has her feet in the Dutch clay and her head in the global cloud. She is passionate about teaching with technology and writes for several platforms about educational resources, social media, and Internet safety.
Academically trained in both communication and education, she worked as an executive television producer in the Netherlands and the UK, and was a program manager for international e-learning events before she started teaching. She has offered digital skills study days, courses, and workshops to both pupils and teachers, and recently started an experimental peer-learning project with IT-savvy pupils teaching the teachers.
She won several awards for the effective and creative use of technology in the classroom and is especially interested in peer coaching, educational apps, and social media. Annemieke evaluates and nominates innovative educational software and applications for one of Germany’s most prestigious digital learning awards, and—like the platform “Schule im Aufbruch” of which she is an active member—believes in transformation initiated by teachers, parents, and children themselves, not by politics.
