Guess Who is Coming to Your Classroom? Online Exchanges and Global Collaborations for Every Classroom
You can bring the world to your classroom! With recent advances in technology, teachers now have a wide variety of options for creating global classroom connections. What kinds of connections are possible? Explore communication and collaboration with students from other countries through live interactions, pen pal programs, data sharing, service learning projects, and more. In addition to structured programs, there are online communities that allow teachers to find one another via discussion groups or announcements that resemble classified ads, and then create their own “do it yourself” connections. This updated 26-page packet compiles information and categorizes options in order to make it easier for teachers to identify a program to try.
