Help Islay Students to go on Mission:Explore

Islay Links in stencil

One of the first entries on this blog had a great quote about the position of Great Britain in the world, especially in relation to Islay. I suspect unfortunately today's students wouldn't get away with that answer any more (even though I would argue technically they would still be right), they have to do a bit more. So let's see if we can give the students on Islay a helping hand to do just that:

The crew at The Geography Collective (some of which I had the pleasure to meet at the Education 2020 Unconference on Islay) is running/developing the Mission:Explore project (see also the Mission:Explore overview). Only a limited connection with Islay at first glance, but stay with me here.

In a blog entry today they asked, Which idea should win 100 copies of Mission:Explore? You guessed right, one of the ideas comes from Islay:

IDEA 6 – Vanessa Fuery: Two islands, Jura and Islay, bags of mission explore potential, all the children on the island can submit ideas for mission explores, in conjunction with our local newspaper and schools and the best can receive one of the books. We can then work with Islay Natural History to get the kids active around the island fulfilling the missions.

When not taking pictures of Herons in flight Vanessa is teaching geography at Islay High School, so she knows a bit about geography and more. But she needs a bit of help, which is where you come in:

Quite a few people have already voted for idea 6, but you should still go to the Which idea should win 100 copies of Mission:Explore? entry, read it, and if you agree leave your vote for idea 6, Islay and Jura, in the comments. Simple as that.

Oh, one more thing: ‘Voting closes at 23:59 on March 31st 2011 (GMT).’ So don't wait!
