Jess McCulloch in innovative style, presented on her fabulously creative Black Line Mystery – the most difficult Chinese character known to mankind. Using google apps to great effect and impact, she has built a series of lesson plans that are set to engage young and old alike. Joining us tonight were two special participants, Vincent Mespoulet from France and Beyond School Walls and Trent who was bracing snow falls somewhere near Antartica, plus many of our valued Australian colleagues.
