About ten years ago started my writing career. Never before I didn’t try to write articles for newspaper but with strong help from editor, kind advices and motivating atmosphere my first articles for students and teachers become visible.
After all, it seems that I had writing talent hidden behind my math skills and now I’m proud author of lots of articles, textbooks and even editor of digital magazine.
Some of articles I wrote for magazine “Enter” you can find here:
- Učilica - Mučilica
- Učenje s računalom
- Edukativni portali
- Kako se radi glazbena čestitka u Audacityju
And more of them on Enter's site www.enter.bug.hr
Few years ago, I start collecting orchids. Back than orchid was rare in shops in Croatia and quite expensive. Now, they are much easier for buying. I still have about 10 orchids in living room, some of them smuggled from Holland :-). Unfortunately, I haven't got enough time to "talk" to them and care about them properly. Maybe that should be one of my promises for next year - find more time for flowers.
You can see some of my orchids on this pages, along with advices how to grow them.

We connect different partners in order to synchronize activities and create synergy among institutions, associations and firms who work on safer internet for children and youth.

For the fifth year in a row, the Croatian teachers association Partners in Learning has launched the national campaign „Safer internet For Kids and Youth“ to promote safer and more responsible use of the internet. Teachers articles and students mulitmedia works from previous years can be found on the website ucitelji.hr and in digital magazine Pogled kroz prozor (A View Through the Window).
Activities for students include the creation of different multimedia files (animations, video files, games etc.) which will not only highlight possible internet dangers but also give advice on how to avoid them. Student work will be showcased on the ucitelji.hr website and prizes for the best projects will be awarded.
Teachers and teaching assistants will participate in the event by organizing seminars, workshops and other types of activities that will engage their students. Teachers will share best practice examples, exchange ideas and give advice and information on online safety issues.

The seminars and the webinars will promote effective, responsible and safe use of the internet. Special emphasis will be placed on the exchange of practical ideas, first-hand experience and useful advice to provide guidance for parents and children in the world of new technologies.

"NO Hate Speech on Internet" is a Croatian national campaign which implementation is coordinated by the Ministry of Social Policy and Youth, in cooperation with the National Committee.
In order to ensure publicity of campaign’s activities, many popular Croatian media presenters, actors and athletes are engaged as campaign’s ambassador (Iva Šulentić) and promoters (Goran Bogdan , Amar Bukvić, Leona Paraminski , Daniela Trbović, Ivana Nanut, Tomislav Jelinčić and Ice Hockey Club Medveščak Zagreb).
Furthermore, in order to encourage young people to get actively involved in spreading campaign’s values and messages, a number of online and offline features and activities are prepared, such as campaigns website, campaigns Facebook profile and official video. Also, Ministry continuously disseminates promotional materials (T-shirts and badges) and provides financial support for NGO’s projects linked with the campaign. More activities, regarding schools and students, are planned in the future.

Pogled kroz prozor
The project I am currently involved with is establishing the community for all members of educational context. The main goal is to create a place where teachers can find news, materials and make professional relationship with each other.
We have three elements for the community:
- The Portal "Suradnici u učenju" (Partners in learning) as the centre and starting point of all activities, with instructions, news, educational materials and repository for digital magazine and webinars.
- A Digital magazine as a place where teachers can publish their articles.
- Webinars as online seminars which members can attend in real time or watch the recorded material later.
Pogled kroz prozor (A View through the window) is published monthly on the web with newsletter to members, and I'm the editor in chief. Pogled contains articles about: How to start a project, Up to date strategies to teach children with special needs, Innovative teacher forum, How to use Photosynth in class, How to make a school calendar, How to organize and prepare for the school start,Reports from conferences in Croatia nad abroad,, How to be active attendee of webinars, Cybersafety for kids and other interesting themes.
You can read all articles in Pogled kroz prozor in RSS feed on the left side.
Webinars - online seminars about different topics with Croatian and International lecturers and audience.
During 2007 Gordana Sokol and I created online educational materials (course) for learning programming in programming language Logo. Those materials contain themes from school curriculum of Informatics for grades 5 and 6.
Programming language Logo is chosen for its simplicity for use and pertinence for children.
Course is available on "Nikola Tesla" Croatian national portal for distance learning and Moodle. You can view webct version on webct.os.carnet.hr, use username and password gost3.
In school I teach math and I use textbooks I wrote. Textbooks are for grades 5. – 8. and all are named “Petica”. Petica (five) is highest mark in our primary school education, and children like that name. I wrote Petica 5, 6, 7 and 8 with Dubravka Glasnović Gracin, Minja Stepić, Zlata Ćurković and Sonja Banić.
We enjoyed working in a team while we are creating those textbooks. Petica has multimedial part –a CD with presentations, flash animations and lots of interactive practices for students.
One part of Petica 6 (Linear equations) is published online on those pages. You can read examples, exercises and solve tasks online.
