Thanks Valerie. I definitely think technology opens up a lot of possibilities for learning, connecting different communities and students from all over the world, different perspectives, experiences and more. It would be great to connect our classes this year.
Thanks Valerie, I have connected with other classrooms before, through things like appear.in or other video conferencing, or even using tools like Padlet, and have discussions. I think technology opens up a lot more opportunities for students to experience different cultures, see different places and so much more. Having someone come in as a guest speaker, or video conference in, having a partner school in another area that is different than your own school, lots of possibilities, just takes that first step. One of the reasons I love going to edcamps, doing twitter chats, voxer groups and more is that we can learn so much more now and bring it all back and share with our colleagues and students.
