Elearning and global competency #flatclass #globaled 03/05/2012



  • Fairtrade fortnight is in March. Here are some lesson plans to help students understand about fair trade including some lessons using bananas and coffee.

  • Yes, kindergarteners can collaborate globally. Right now, we've kicked off a project K-2 pilot that our certified teachers have said needed to happen. It is a pilot (meaning we have enough volunteers and supporters to run the project) and had to close sign ups after just a week when 40 classrooms signed up from around the world.

    Julie reflects on the beginning of the project where more than 30 teachers came in to talk and plan! This is very exciting. Many super-teachers like Maria Knee (A Kaye Bitter Sweet award at ISTE- pardon spelling) and others. Very exciting.

    It is helping that we've developed a common pedagogy and "language" of global collaboration so that the community of practice is there with those who have read the book or become certified teachers. We are seeing great things happen. Join us sometime. (Free webinar Tuesday afternoon with Julie and I being hosted by Pearson.)
