Virginia STAR and LC member, Doug Knapp, left for a 12-day mission trip to Ethiopia on Monday. Doug is the assistant principal at Linkhorn Park Elementary School in Virginia Beach…and my husband ; ) He has an “after Spring Break” opportunity for our students that he wanted to share with you. Doug has created a blog, KnappNotes, for the students to be able to follow his travel adventures to Africa. The Internet in Ethiopia is quite different from what we are use to in the US, to say the least. He hopes to be able to upload pictures and video throughout his journey and was disappointed to learn that Skyp-ing was not possible with the government control of the Internet. He will definitely be adding posts and comments and looks forward to reading comments from the students and answering any questions that are posted to the site.
You can access the blog at http://blogs.vbschools.com/knappnotes/. Feel free to share with anyone who may be interested.
