Thailand, or better know by many as the Land of Smiles, is one of the most common destinations for international educators. Thailand is beautiful and safe and there are an abundance of jobs for teachers. There are also many place to visit and some of the most amazing sites on Earth!
A HyperDoc is a digital document—such as a Google Doc—where all components of a learning cycle have been pulled together into one central hub.
The Cult of Pedagogy gives a great overview of Hyperdocs and how to use them in your classroom.
I love the book The HyperDoc Handbook: Digital Lesson Design Using Google Apps

This is a great Hyperdoc created by Kendra Tyler.
The Learning Outcomes for students are to:
1. Understand Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird through the citing of textual evidence and drawing inferences.
2. Understand and determine how time, era, and author’s background impacts authors and readers.
3. Determine a theme or central idea of a text and analyze in detail its development over the course of the text, including how it emerges and is shaped and refined by specific details; provide an objective summary of the text.

The Giver is one of my favorite books and I have taught with students from Grade 5 to Grade 10. Everyone loves the book. Kevin has created a great Hyperdoc that asks the Essential Questions:
What does it mean to be “perfect”?
Does your identity come from your outward appearance or your inward person?
What would life be like without free will?
How important really is the freedom to choose?
I've also been looking into a Celta, it looks potentially useful ( more so than a TEFL!?) SOmebody else suggested it was challenging too, especially if completed full time but it does seem like a realistic, fast track option of sorts. It might limit me to adult education though for the time being but it would be a useful addition to my CV.
Looks like there i only one school here in Sweden providing the course, Umeå up in the north of the country.I find myself in Uppsala('Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' territory). It's a city in it's own right about 40 minutes north of Stockholm.)
There are apparently 4 schools providing the course in London where i previously lived and have ties to. Online courses are a possibility but attendance for class planning and assessment are required and international travel is obviously complicated right now.
I will look int the other links you've sent too.
Thanks for your support, much appreciated.
