@mpowers3 Learned some awesome stuff about virtual exchange brain research today! [Spoiler: #globalclassroom collab. is a good thing]
HeidiHutchison
23:04
Want to use Skype to have multiple classrooms chat-don't want to have to pay the bucks! lol #globalclassroom #plpnetwork #globalclassroom

23:05
@iEARNUSA Awesome! Can't wait to hear more about it! #globalclassroom
mpowers3
23:06
Q1 So ... WHY should teachers and students explore ways to share, connect, and collaborate globally? #globalclassroom
mpowers3
23:07
@HeidiHutchison Can you say more? To have multiple classrooms chat simultaneously? Have you tried Google Hangouts? #globalclassroom

To prepare for global citizenship,gain perspective, promote peace and tolerance,learn from/with eachother #globalclassroom #globalclassroom

@mpowers3 Prof. Rebecca Saxe, Director, Social Cognitive Neuroscience Lab, MIT studies benefits of virtual exchanges. #globalclassroom
mpowers3
23:10
BTW, check out this Google Doc http://t.co/u7EHrosH to hear others' ideas and share your own about #globaled collaboration! #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
23:10
My idea is:http://t.co/S22VvDsl Google Hangout costs money multiple to do classes at once. #globalclassroom #globalclassroom
mpowers3
23:11
A1: To organically be able 2 discuss different global cultures, stereotypes, assumptions, and ideas w/Ss in meaningful ways #globalclassroom

@mpowers3 @hechternacht 'Empathy increases as people learn names and faces'" - Rebecca Saxe. So #globalclassroom = empathy creation
mpowers3
23:13
@HeidiHutchison Skype is free for multiple classes? That's great! I know you can do 6 at a time for free via Google. #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
23:14
Yes! We teach empathy-hard to teach but kids do learn it.Sympathy 1st then empathy follows. #globlaclassroom #globalclassroom
mpowers3
23:14
Love it! RT @iEARNUSA @hechternacht 'Empathy increases as people learn names & faces'" - R. Saxe. So #globalclassroom = empathy creation
HeidiHutchison
23:14
@mpowers3 But Google is within Canada and USA. I want 4 different countries at once! #globalclassroom #globalclassroom
mpowers3
23:14
It definitely is! RT @jacpatterson: @mpowers3 Because it is fun! #globalclassroom

23:16
@mpowers3 Why #globalclassroom? Let's kids take action on current events. We're linking US-Pakistani classes today around #Malala's story.
mpowers3
23:16
Has anyone used empathy & other socio-emotional aspects as reasons "why" 2 do #globaled work in school? To convince others? #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
23:16
If we begin when st.s r young, and they put a face with a name, maybe there will be less violence...maybe #globalclassroom #globalclassroom
mpowers3
23:18
@iEARNUSA That's great! Suggestions for teachers who feel #globaled is an "extra" that they don't have room/time for? #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
23:19
We need to be careful of putting out quality stuff though.Does every thought need validation from the universe? #justsayin' #globalclassroom

23:19
@HeidiHutchison Gotcha! & u're only looking for real-time video? Voicethread & other tools could be neat 4 asynchronous :) #globalclassroom
mpowers3
23:19
Q2: So once you figure out the WHY ... WHAT does global collaboration look like? How can we describe it to others? #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
23:20
@murcha That's awesome and so, so important! #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
23:21
I think it needs to go beyond a connection. I want Global Collab to help build relationships, understanding, relationships. #globalclassroom
hechternacht
23:22
MT @iEARNUSA: Why #globalclassroom? Kids, action, current events. Linking US-Pakistani classes today around #Malalas story #globalclassroom
mpowers3
23:23
@HeidiHutchison Agree! I think when relationships form, that's when u create a lasting impact. It becomes so much more real #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
23:23
Global collab should be defined b/w the teachers doing it. Communication is key for great collab.- #globalclassroom
iEARNUSA
23:23
@mpowers3 If you view empath & empowering students as an "extra" in the classroom, then #globaled #globalclassroom may not work
HeidiHutchison
23:24
Collaboration to me means what you start with looks a little different in the end. It's not the you or the me, but the we. #globalclassroom

23:25
We need to MODEL for students how to collaborate and be global citizens! Show them we are a work in progress, all of us! #globalclassroom
mpowers3
23:25
@iEARNUSA True, I guess it comes back to helping clarify that #globaled CAN empower & foster empathy & therefore = valuable #globalclassroom

What about concrete descriptions/products to explain what #globaled & collaboration look like? #globalclassroom
iEARNUSA
23:27
@HeidiHutchison Remember that asymchronous is powerful part of #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
23:27
Example? #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
23:28
@iEARNUSA What does that mean exactly? "Asymchronous" #globalclassroom
iEARNUSA
23:28
@HeidiHutchison Keep it simple. Share names & faces http://t.co/8wzDx7g0 #globalclassroom
mpowers3
23:28
Q3: HOW can we help tchrs overcome challenges & obstacles faced by teachers interested in flattening their classrm walls? #globalclassroom
iEARNUSA
23:30
@HeidiHutchison Asynchronous = e-mail, lettes over a week'/months's time, for example. Not live videoconferencing, fSkype. #globalclassroom
mpowers3
23:30
@HeidiHutchison HOW: 1 way is to start local & grow global. Collab. w/i your classrm, then school, then state/country ... #globalclassroom
mpowers3
23:31
@HeidiHutchison I'd also recommend checking out other organizations & tchrs already global e.g., @iearnusa #kinderchat #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
23:31
@hechternacht Did Quadblogging last year...maybe I need to just try one classroom and then move to more if possible. #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
23:32
@hechternacht I work at a Quaker school where we do a Meeting every week and share our thoughts. It can be powerful. #globalclassroom
mpowers3
23:33
I've found that the more minds you can get together, the better brainstorming & creative ideas you find for global collab! #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
23:33
Overcoming obstacles: Helping teachers connect curriculum to globally collaborating would help. #globalclassroom
iEARNUSA

23:35
@HeidiHutchison Yes, I've found that obstacle too. Can be tough to explain how units can be expanded to have global lens #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
23:35
Example: Look at your essential questions in curriculum and post on Twitter for ideas. #globalclassroom
mpowers3
23:36
@HeidiHutchison Wonder if u could try 4 different UStream channels @ 1x, 1 for each class? Not sure how it works out of US #globalclassroom

@HeidiHutchison Philosophy of Quaker mtg could be neat 2 share w/other classes. Have u ever held a live 1 w/another class? #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
23:39
Gosh, I am lucky I do not have to adhere to strict standards, although standards r important. #luckytobeatFriendsSchool #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
23:40
@mpowers3 No! But great idea! #globalclassroom
HeidiHutchison
23:41
@iEARNUSA Need to show examples of global collab. ideas to them that would work. #globalclassroom

HeidiHutchison
23:44
@mpowers3 I think posting ideas and having teachers spread the word. Simple ideas for the young ones though like... #globalclassroom
