@tashacowdy Can you give us an example of a collab project in the google doc pls thanks #globalclassroom
ICT_Integrator
10:36
Step one I would say is show them how to make global connections themselves - such as Twitter. #globalclassroom
tashacowdy
10:37
@ICT_Integrator Could we help teachers by supporting them in developing their own PLNS first.? Easier to make the leap. #globalclassroom
ICT_Integrator
10:37
Might be a good idea to start local first, find a school in another province, state etc. then expand further? #globalclassroom
ICT_Integrator
10:38
@tashacowdy Great minds think alike :) #globalclassroom
derekbartels
10:39
