On October 5th representatives from KI and IEGS presented the BigO System (the mobile app and the School Portal) to Physical Education, Science, and Home Economy teachers in the facilities of IEGS in central Stockholm.

As a treat, when I get closer to the school, I set my eyes on the colorful and ever changing window displays of Gunnarsons Specialkonditori and Skrapan boutique in Södermalm. Delicious breads, pastries and cakes of the season are promoted at this timeless konditori, while the other has a very fashion forward window display that subtlety integrates local and global awareness on events or issues.
