If Ss have opportunities to communicate and collaborated f2f, it's easier for them to communicate and collaborate globally #globalclassroom
murcha
10:23
@mgraffin What tools can be used to begin these #globalclassroom conversations between individuals and classes?
murcha
10:24
Q3 How does global learning/collaboration differ between younger and older learners? #globalclassroom
murcha
10:25
Hmmm I find that some of quietest least confident students (ie the older ones) can be most confident in chat and on webcam. #globalclassroom
SwayGrantham
10:26
@murcha A3 more modelling and support needed for younger end and more advice/safety skills needed #globalclassroom
SwayGrantham
10:27
@murcha @mgraffin projects such as @SkypeClassroom and @etwinninguk are good for making global connections #globalclassroom
mgraffin
10:27
@Themadkiwi1 @murcha this is how @Deb_Frazier's Kids Speak project originated ... from kids' inquiry http://t.co/E0JA8QxY #globalclassroom
tashacowdy

A3 Often big idea is the same but different tools more appropriate for one age group than another #globalclassroom

Global learning/collab may b more tchr driven & scaffolded w young. Tools may vary. Individual blogs for older students #globalclassroom

#globalclassroom Only thing preventing teachers from using global learning network -Internet- is teacher fear of change http://t.co/VA09bYoI

Bonjour, yall. Hey, @murcha if you are looking for a #globalclassroom project, I'm just starting one up on environmental awareness campaigns
vanschaijik
10:39
@murcha Where are you Anne? have a sabbatical to explore this area July 2013? #globalclassroom
PhilipBenz
10:40
@GregReynoldsTTS is right, tchrs are reticent to launch #globalclassroom projects for mny reasons: they think it will be too much extra work
murcha
10:41
@vanschaijik Teach in SE Australia- rural school culturally /geographically isolated. My students see cultures thru web cam #globalclassroom
tashacowdy
10:41
Q5. Which tools do you find most useful for global collaboration? #globalclassroom
PhoenixSchool
10:42
@gregreynolds agree. Kids are ready for more. Teachers need confidence to learn together with kids. #globalclassroom
murcha
10:42
@PhilipBenz Do you have link to share on environmental awareness global project. Others may be interested #globalclassroom.
SwayGrantham
10:42
@murcha @gregreynoldstts but policies in place to protect from any potential esafety worries and worries of being sued #globalclassroom
jasongraham99
10:43
@tashacowdy A5 any tool that allows collaboration on a level playing field. Sometimes its snail mail. Sometimes skype #globalclassroom
SwayGrantham
10:43
@tashacowdy A5 twitter, blogs #globalclassroom
PhilipBenz
10:43
Tools for #globalclassroom projects: blogs are good for publishing student work, but you can't beat forums for asynchronous conversations.

@PhilipBenz #globalclassroom Learning to be comfortable using social media takes work, also learning to accept global observation & feedback
tashacowdy
10:46
VoiceThread is good for pre-writers as it allows then to contribute content and add notes verbally and through photos #globalclassroom
murcha
10:47
Q6 How do you embed global learning in a school's culture? #globalclassroom
jasongraham99

@SwayGrantham @murcha #globalclassroom Online laws evolving, prudence required, Socialmedia is just another medium we teach how to use ok
tashacowdy
10:52

PhilipBenz
10:52
@Themadkiwi1 mentions "The boy who harnssd the wind" - great TED talk, used it in class last year. http://t.co/iinDGcoY #globalclassroom
jasongraham99
10:52
A6 learning how to make, sustain meaningful connections is key. Starts with those close by. It starts in the early years. #globalclassroom

7a. Is it important that all students contribute in a project? #globalclassroom
PhilipBenz
10:54
The tools for #globalclassroom projects are many, as are the obstacles. How to convince colleagues that 21st century skills are key?

Hi all. Just woke up. No brain yet. Reading and retweeting. #globalclassroom

As long as #globalclassroom projects remain the province of isolated innovators, they won't change Education as a whole: we must reach out!

jasongraham99
10:56
@Themadkiwi1 this is an issue here. We try to make connections to local (needy) communities, is this even realistic? #globalclassroom
jasongraham99
10:57
@Themadkiwi1 so the kids do something that makes everyone 'feel good' service. Good is done. BUT I dont see it sustaining #globalclassroom
murcha
10:57
A7a Preferable all students contribute 2 project but not always possible - skill level interest shown age shld b considered #globalclassroom

@jasongraham99 By "it starts in the early years" do you mean the elmntry clssrm? IMHO, #globalclassroom prjcts are important at all levels.
