I thought this was a good article to go along with our chat. thoughts? http://t.co/IyaIuSqP #globalclassroom

18:07
Hi from Calgary Alberta! I'm looking forward to this chat! #globalclassroom :)
CHuckeba
18:07
@MrsMorgansClass Interesting. I wonder if the government and that company would open any doors for schools/edu? #Globalclassroom
CliveSir
18:07
@MrsMorgansClass That's an interesting read of Ethiopians' alternative reality #globalclassroom
MrsMorgansClass
18:07
My experience w/ schools in dev countries includes a school in Nepal. Has anyone else had this type of contact? #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:08
@MrsMorgansClass What a TRAGEDY-that article=SO sad. So many valuable lrning exp squashed right there. http://t.co/JVPRlNYt #globalclassroom
MrsMorgansClass
18:09
@CHuckeba not likely - it sounds like they want total control. Probably don't want school children exposed to world #globalclassroom
CHuckeba
18:09
@CliveSir Definitely a different reality for them. I wonder what news access, if any, they have? #Globalclassroom
MrsMorgansClass
18:09
yes.RT @RentonL: What a TRAGEDY-that article=SO sad. So many valuable lrning exp squashed right there. http://t.co/IyaIuSqP #globalclassroom
CliveSir
18:09
@MrsMorgansClass I've been involved with helping Sri Lankan schools communicate with English-speaking schools. #Globalclassroom
RentonL
18:10
@MrsMorgansClass Think it's GOT to be about "freedom of expression" and power over the people. #globalclassroom
learningmurd
18:10
I think a good step to understanding is being part of a conversation like the one we have on Skype.#globalclassroom informal so informative
MrsMorgansClass
18:11
@RentonL Laurie, have you had any issues with your collaboration with Peru? #globalclassroom
CHuckeba
18:11
@MrsMorgansClass Very sad indeed. Limiting access to knowledge! #Globalclassroom
CliveSir
18:11
I worked in Sri Lanka for a year with NGO. Also 18months in sch in India (but no Internet there) #Globalclassroom
RentonL
18:11
@CHuckeba @CliveSir So-wonder how they deal w the mail system. & what mail system is like ... can take mos 4 some places. #globalclassroom
MrsMorgansClass
18:11
how can we collaborate with schools which don’t have electricity or an internet connection? #globalclassroom
MrsMorgansClass
18:12
@RentonL everything is run by govt. If it's like US, probably not very efficient #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:12
@CHuckeba @CliveSir We have an NGO initiative w @Mosqoy in rural Peru - mail takes 2-3 months. #globalclassroom
learningmurd
18:12
#globalclassroom something as simple as our earth hour turn off lights thing made a Nepal teacher wonder. Their power off 10 hrs at a time
CliveSir
18:13
@MrsMorgansClass There is still good old-fashioned mail ! yes, slow. Penpals and project exchanges #Globalclassroom
bhallowes
18:13
@MrsMorgansClass In some developing countries there is a high ratio of mobile phones to the population. They could be used #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:13
@MrsMorgansClass We've worked solely thru an NGO with @Mosqoy - sadly, limited to no contact w students but blding library #globalclassroom
CHuckeba
18:14
@learningmurd That is fascinating. We (I) take a lot for granted with access to tech/electricity! #Globalclassroom
bhallowes
18:14
Mobile phones can be used for collaboration.
MrsMorgansClass
18:14
@CliveSir Yes! the Flat Stanley project is alive & well! http://t.co/5HnnH6T1 #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:15
@MrsMorgansClass True - hope is for more contact nxt yr-but we've had GLITCHES - excitement building & NOT follow through. #globalclassroom
CHuckeba
18:15
@bhallowes That is a great point! If they have the mobile access we can open many doors. #Globalclassroom
MrsMorgansClass
18:15
@bhallowes Dio the mobile phones have internet and international access? #globalclassroom
learningmurd
18:16
#globalclassroom we have a snail mail kinder project going with Vietnam next year,
RentonL
18:16
@MrsMorgansClass Learned a TON about Global Initiatives tho - tough lessons 4 gr 3 but valuable life lessons #globalclassroom
CHuckeba
18:16
@RentonL It takes time. This is a good start. Eventually we will get more involvement. #Globalclassroom
learningmurd
18:16
#globalclassroom wonder if there is a way to connect to a larger center in a remote area that coordinates getting things to more ruralarea
bhallowes
18:17
@MrsMorgansClass It is becoming more common for phones to have internet access through 3G. #globalclassroom
CHuckeba
18:17
@learningmurd Really? How did you go about organizing that? #Globalclassroom
ClassLibrary1
18:17
RT @MrsMorgansClass: how can we collaborate with schools which don’t have electricity or an internet connection? #globalclassroom
bhallowes
18:17
@learningmurd This sounds interesting. Please tell us more. #globalclassroom
MrsMorgansClass
18:17
Time zones can be an issue too. Voicethread and videostreaming are good for collaborating - just not in real time. #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:17
@CHuckeba @bhallowes I think one way is to strike up a relationship w an NGO who can act as a go between #globalclassroom
CliveSir
18:18

bhallowes
18:18
@RentonL Excellent idea. #globalclassroom
CliveSir
18:19
@RentonL Exactly. I was working with such an NGO. #globalclassroom
MrsMorgansClass
18:19
@CliveSir was this achieved through mailing? #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:19
@CHuckeba @bhallowes 4 us this has been the ONLY way 2 have contact-mail is SLOW & no internet connections except in towns #globalclassroom
learningmurd
18:19
@CHuckeba #kinderchat has a #skypeplay project.limited face time, so we are connecting snail mail then glogster style video #globalclassroom
MrsMorgansClass
18:20
Q2: How can we tap into the hidden potential of schools in developing countries? #globalclassroom
CliveSir
18:20
@RentonL Yes - project exchange 95% through mail. #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:20
@CliveSir It's AMAZING if they are up for mentoring our students & continuing a long term relationship! #globalclassroom
MrsMorgansClass
18:21
@CliveSir time consuming and expensive? How do you fund this project? #globalclassroom
CliveSir
18:21
@RentonL That's the real problem - a long-term committment from the "developed" schools #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:21
@CliveSir The TOUGH part is FINDING an NGO ... ours fell into our laps - SO fortunate - but we were up for cultivating it! #globalclassroom
learningmurd
18:22
#globalclassroom not really this topic. It is a connected school. wondering raising awareness for global tech access. What role do we play ?
RentonL
18:22
@CliveSir On our end, it hasn't been a problem because it meshes beautifully w our curriculum! #globalclassroom
bhallowes
18:22
@CliveSir Snail mail also has limitations. I have some relatives in Mocambique - they have not postal service. Email only. #globalclassroom
MrsMorgansClass
18:23
@RentonL I think that is the challenge: finding the school & building the partnership. #globalclassroom
CliveSir
18:23
The British Council is a good place to start to find NGOs - at least in UK. #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:23
@CliveSir more of a challenge to find people in an NGO who are ALSO excited for consistent contact #globalclassroom
bhallowes
18:23
RT @CliveSir: The British Council is a good place to start to find NGOs - at least in UK. #globalclassroom
CHuckeba
18:24
@CliveSir Agreed. It takes a lot of work/effort from teachers and admin. all have to be on board for success. #Globalclassroom
RentonL
18:24
@MrsMorgansClass Our partnership is more with the NGO at this point - but want to find a way to connect w kids in Q'enqo #globalclassroom
CliveSir
18:25
AdoptSriLanka (dot) com 's main purpose is to facilitate communications with English-speaking schools around globe #globalclassroom
gpmorgan3
18:25
Instead of snail mail can email be used? Checked when at a place with Internet #Globalclassroom
MrsMorgansClass
18:25
@CHuckeba Exactly. And you have to justify that what you are doing is in line with curriculum and standards. #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:25
@MrsMorgansClass @Mosqoy goes back and forth between Canada and Peru - we are lucky to Skype OFTEN w them! #beautiful #globalclassroom
CliveSir
18:26
Some SriLankan schools came to NGO's offices to skype with schools abroad. #globalclassroom
learningmurd
18:26
#globalclassroom finding them yes. This chat and its connections has been amazing for getting out and finding global connections
bhallowes
18:26
Some rural villages in developing countries have internet cafe's where contact can be made via email. #globalclassroom
MrsMorgansClass
18:27
@CliveSir if there is a will there is a way! #globalclassroom
CliveSir
18:27
Very often the tech know-how doesn't exist in rural schools - not even for email. That was my main role. #globalclassroom
CliveSir
18:28
@MrsMorgansClass Absolutely :) #globalclassroom
learningmurd
18:28
#globalclassroom Plus finding people thru Little World Skype Players is pretty amazing http://t.co/lOkdRpmZ
bhallowes
18:28
@MrsMorgansClass Having the will is the first step to success.
RentonL
18:28
@MrsMorgansClass building global initiative is tough-finding NGO is tough - I wonder if there's a site 2 connect with NGOs #globalclassroom
CliveSir
18:29
@RentonL Doesn't Skype have a list of schools who want to connect? #globalclassroom
MrsMorgansClass
18:29
@iEARN has a network facilitating global access to schools collaboration partners in the developing world. #globalclassroom
gpmorgan3
18:30
I am experim. using only sm iPod to communicate globally this summer. #Globalclassroom
RentonL
18:30
@CliveSir I am not sure - but that would be a GREAT place to start I think. #globalclassroom
MicheleHarris3
18:31
@CliveSir You can sign up for skype in the classroom and check out lots of projects, or make your own.
MrsMorgansClass
18:31
@iEARN is a good place to start: http://t.co/5s86uQSp #globalclassroom
gpmorgan3
18:31
Focusing on what have and way around instead of what we can't do, is important! #Globalclassroom
RentonL
18:32
@CliveSir I think people have to think about what country fits with their curriculum ... then do some research 2 find NGO - #globalclassroom
learningmurd
18:32
#globalclassroom Skype classroom has tonnes of projects , but again the challenge is finding the one that is not quite so 1st world driven
MrsMorgansClass
18:32
@gpmorgan3 that's awesome! If there is a will there is a way! #globalclassroom

@bhallowes Hi Brenda!
learningmurd
18:35
@gpmorgan3 you have me thinking:) maybe it is as ready as following a twitter chat in a remote area. #globalclassroom
MrsMorgansClass
18:35
Any other examples of real educational projects which teachers can join which don’t require an online collaboration? #globalclassroom
MrsMorgansClass
18:35
Yes!RT @learningmurd: @gpmorgan3 you have me thinking:) maybe it is as ready as following a twitter chat in a remote area. #globalclassroom
MrsMorgansClass
18:36
internet connection, time zones, limited resources, government limitations...what are some other challenges? #globalclassroom
MicheleHarris3
18:37
@MrsMorgansClass Do u mean like the classes making vids teaching other class something? Just an idea...
bhallowes
18:37
@MrsMorgansClass Teacher willingness and technology skills. #globalclassroom
MrsMorgansClass
18:38
How do you handle the language barrier? #globalclassroom

18:38
I wantd learn about NL,CA. Startd follow Twitter feeds now have 100+friend in NL #Globalclassroom
ICT_Integrator
18:38
@MrsMorgansClass Language barriers? English is often a third language, not well understood. #globalclassroom
CliveSir
18:38
I worked in a school which only had electricity for half the year - that's a problem ;) #globalclassroom
CHuckeba
18:38
@MrsMorgansClass Admin and teacher buy-in. I think most students are ready to connect! #Globalclassroom

Finding searching then doing. My world has opened up! Chats that this r incredible! #Globalclassroom
MrsMorgansClass
18:40
@michelleharris3 Kids Speak is an excellent example of global collab. using Voicethread http://t.co/n0cxVybE #globalclassroom
CliveSir
18:40
Schools in dev countries are often keen to practise their English, as well as exchange cultural knowledge etc #globalclassroom
learningmurd
18:40
#globalclassroom I am lucky in that I teach kindergarten. The language barrier is a learning opportunity
RentonL
18:40
@gpmorgan3 That is a GREAT idea - connecting w educators in the country you are trying to connect with, thu twitter. #globalclassroom
MrsMorgansClass
18:41
yep! RT @CHuckeba: @MrsMorgansClass Admin and teacher buy-in. I think most students are ready to connect! #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:41
@gpmorgan3 That might be a FAB way of connecting w a class or an NGO working in the area. #globalclassroom

18:41
@learningmurd Would be great if we could all see it that way! #globalclassroom

I worked with 80 schools in Sri Lanka (2010-11) Not one used Twitter, nor did the NGO. #globalclassroom

@MrsMorgansClass Trouble with Voicethread is the free version very limited. Developing country and = limited finances. #globalclassroom
MrsMorgansClass
18:42
@CliveSir one evening a class in Taiwan serenaded @gpmorgan3 and I via @skype. They were learning English through song:-) #globalclassroom
MrsMorgansClass
18:43
@bhallowes I have only used the free version. So far no issues with limitations. #globalclassroom

1st world perspective should be shaken up by interacting with other cultures - our system is flawed in many ways #globalclassroom

I want to hear more about this! RT @MrsMorgansClass: We comm w/Govinda in Nepal #globalclassroom

18:52
@MrsMorgansClass I missed the convo. So sorry - what is the virtual classroom you use?
MrsMorgansClass
18:53
@ICT_Integrator yes. Also google hangouts is even better, but there are blocking issues. #globalclassroom

How about Google hangout instead of Skype. Multi. Users free! #Globalclassroom

18:58
@MrsMorgansClass Thanks for this, will look into this. #globalclassroom
MrsMorgansClass
18:58
@ICTwitz absolutely! But connecting students worldwide flattens our classroom walls and makes our students globally aware. #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:58
@MrsMorgansClass Thank you, Louise! Lots of good food for thought. Always enjoy these chats! #globalclassroom Enjoy the day! :)
ICT_Integrator
18:59
@ICTwitz A whole new topic for another chat, I think. Interesting... #globalclassroom
learningmurd
18:59
@ICTwitz we use global partners to help students focus on the aspects of their own community. Compare and contrast powerful #globalclassroom
bhallowes
18:59
@ICTwitz I agree. Here in South Africa there is a big gap between rural and urban schools. We could learn from one another #globalclassroom
ICTwitz
19:00
@MrsMorgansClass I accept that. No problems. Are students locally aware as well though? I would suggest not. #globalclassroom
RentonL
19:00
@MrsMorgansClass @ICTwitz It's also a part of many of our curriculums - local and global connections. #globalclassroom

@CliveSir What I am advocating is that linking globally IS GOOD, but we need to remember -'ve impact of globalisation #globalclassroom
ICTwitz
19:17
But has been said...perhaps a consideration for future chats #globalclassroom

@CICTwitz we need to remember -'ve impact of globalisation - can you elaborate? #globalclassroom
ICTwitz

@bhallowes Negative impact of globalisation? Indeed: Increase of child labor, poor pay & working conditions. Capitalism. #globalclassroom
ICTwitz
19:22
@bhallowes Environmental impact; lack of community; increased pressure of natural resources. #globalclassroom

19:23
@ICTwitz Thanks. Those are very real. #globalclassroom
ICTwitz
19:24
@bhallowes So, I am advocating that going global IS GOOD, but need to consider ALL global aspects. #globalclassroom
bhallowes
19:25
@ICTwitz Absolutely. #globalclassroom
