Project MirandaCzech colleagues have been Fellows of MirandaNet for the last seven years (follow this link for information about one of the Czech schools). Now, they have established the Czech Miranda which preserves their own identity and diversity. The Czech team has developed a national identity as expert advisers to government based on their international Fellowship experience. An ICT training centre for teachers has been sponsored by Hewlett Packard and Microsoft in Prague.

The following report appeared in NAACE News on June 21st 2002

Since the Velvet Revolution The MirandaNet Fellows have been working in collaboration with Czech teachers and teacher educators on the use of ICT to promote new alliances in international citizenship adn professional growth and change. Lenka Zernova, a Czech Miranda Fellows, observed, "After long period of political isolation our Czech teachers can gain from seeing how other teachers work and share their concerns and interests. We are most interested in learning about collaborative and constructive learning which includes understanding democratic procedures and processes."

As a result of MirandaNet Fellowship work, Christina was awarded the Trnokova medal from the Czech Technical University on June 20th in Prague. Understanding how professional organisations function has been a new slant on post totalitarian freedom for the Czech teachers and teacher educators. NAACE accepted the applications of two MirandaNet Fellows in 1996. Visits to NAACE conferences and advice from members has been influential in the Czechs' decision this year to set up a similar organisation to fight a new kind of threat to educational freedom in the Czech Republic - commercial totalitarianism.
