Global Connections

Developing global and cultural awareness and collaboration skills is important for our students in today’s workforce. ISTE has standards for teachers and students, which share the need for students and teachers to work collaboratively with people from other parts of the globe to increase their perspective and understanding of others. 

A few places to consider getting started

Skype in the Classroom 

  • Virtual Field Trips 
  • Skype Lessons 
  • Skype Collaborations 
  • Mystery Skype 
  • Guest Speakers 
Google Hangouts 
Classroom Bridges 

Many teachers also begin with blogging to increase audience for student voice while others use Twitter to reach author's and share classroom projects, student thinking.
