@MrsMorgansClass A1: Connecting globally energizes the learning! Gives you a different perspective on concepts. #globalclassroom
MrsMorgansClass
18:13
Absolutely! RT @tdallen5: need to explore ways to collaborate globally to get a better perspective of the REAL world. #globalclassroom
bhallowes
18:14
@MrsSchmidtB4 I agree absolutely. Preparing students for the 21st century working environment. #globalclassroom
RentonL
18:15
A1 The learning is authentic, immediate and meaningful when connections are made beyond the classroom walls. #globalclassroom
hechternacht
18:15
@utalaniz Agree! I love the "unpredictability" the unexpected turns being connected takes you! #globalclassroom
learningmurd
18:15
Is is controversial to say that it is simply fun : ) #globalclassroom
MrsSchmidtB4
18:16
Also teaches them to respect and appreciate the similarities and differences in others around the world. #globalclassroom

@learningmurd NO - it absolutely is fun! #globalclassroom

So many businesses operate using online global tools. #globalclassroom
MrsMorgansClass
18:16
That's ONE reason why I do it! RT @learningmurd: Is is controversial to say that it is simply fun : ) #globalclassroom
learningmurd
18:16
Certainly developing the "it's a small world" concept is powerful. You "bump" into people you met in other circles #globalclassroom

@learningmurd Maybe but that's the best reason! RT @learningmurd Is is controversial to say that it is simply fun : ) #globalclassroom

Once you start connecting globally, you can't stop! It's a good addiction. :) #globalclassroom

So now we know WHY we should do it...Q 2: WHAT does global collaboration look like? #globalclassroom
GeorgetteNairn
18:19
Hello everyone, just joining. What is the first question?
bhallowes
18:19
I also find that students are motivated by the idea that they are communicating beyond the classroom walls. #globalclassroom

18:19
@GeorgetteNairn WHY should teachers and students explore ways to share, connect, and collaborate globally? #globalclassroom
GeorgetteNairn

hechternacht
18:20
@GeorgetteNairn Hi Georgette! Where are you from? #globalclassroom
bhallowes
18:20
@MrsMorgansClass Q2. The teacher makes connections through PLN. A connected teacher = connected students. #globalclassroom
tdallen5
18:21
Global collaboration can be messy and look unorganized. #globalclassroom
