Knock the Walls out of Your Classroom and Connect Your Students Globally!
NETS 1a - Promote, support, and model creative and innovative thinking

Connecting classrooms around the globe increases students’ cultural sensitivity and increases their understanding of a global work environment! The classrooms of today need to break free of the thought that the sky is the limit when we know there are footprints on the moon. The only limitations are those that we impose on ourselves. The classrooms of today and tomorrow should no longer have a closed door with a teacher disseminating information, but instead a classroom that is connected virtually to the world of other teachers and classrooms around the globe that can expand the number of classes available to students as well as opportunities to collaborate, problem solve and learn about discovers, cultures and people from around the world. I have had the unique opportunities to teach and work with students in 38+ countries. In this session I will share strategies that I have used to teach and collaborate with students around the world and provide resources and ideas that teachers can use to connect their classroom to other classrooms around the country and and other continents. I will also include video messages from my students around the world and descriptions about how their experience in virtual school has helped them and what they have learned.
