A1 This is an exellent question here in the states we have been working with at our school. #globalclassroom
10:10:20
ToscaKilloran
A1- for me #globalclassroom is a necessity for children to develop empathy & connection!
10:12:18
cerniglia
A1 So many reasons to learn abt world but some parents worry that means cutting out some US history. Sometimes true. #globalclassroom
10:13:47
MindyKellerKyri
@ToscaKilloran A1: Definitely! If we can move ourselves past sociocentric thinking, the entire planet benefits. #globalclassroom
10:13:55
ToscaKilloran
Q1 EXTEND Should ALL students receive some form of global education as part of their schooling? #globalclassroom
10:14:15
cerniglia
But modifications to curr are those that are not as relevant as the new curr that replaces it for "empathy & connection" #globalclassroom
10:14:53
ToscaKilloran

ToscaKilloran
Q1 in a digital world the #globalclassroom IS the relevant curr!! I mean, look @ this chat!! Totally global!
10:18:23
cerniglia
A2 I think so-- all students should learn about the world in school! #globalclassroom
10:18:30
ToscaKilloran
Throwing it out there Q2 What learning materials and issues have you explored which have been most successful in creating a #globalclassroom
10:19:25
ToscaKilloran

In Cambodia, electricity overuse contributed to blackouts ... Yet people leave the lights on ... How teach 4 ESL learners? #globalclassroom
10:51:12
ToscaKilloran
A3 & 4 I think using OpenSource is another interesting way to globalize #globalclassroom http://t.co/m4teg4eVX5

@cerniglia #globalclassroom this is an amazing project makes me wonder why we don´t do that with the Asian people in my city.
10:55:34
ToscaKilloran
@mgraffin Delving deeper is about emotional connections between communities- understanding needs. A bit of anthro work #globalclassroom
10:57:51
cerniglia
. @mariacolussa Thanks! What was amazing is that, w/guidance, the students created their own projects. #globalclassroom
10:58:41

About 2 mins left. Any additonal thoughts on these big ideas for k-12 curr? Just throw it out there! B a risktaker! #globalclassroom
10:59:50

@ToscaKilloran true - its about going beyond the surface connection 2 form personal connections #globalclassroom takes time ...

I guess "criteria" is a better word for it than rubric-- but you get the idea :-) At least this isn't assessment chat, lol #globalclassroom
