Teachers will learn how to better connect their classroom with the real world. How connected is your classroom with the other classes in your school? Does the learning stop when you leave the classroom? Do parents know what does on? How would someone connect to collaborate with your class coming a different country? Do your students have the ability to continue lessons outside of class? Do you advertise the great things going on in your classroom? These are questions that you may have pondered at one time, but not really understood how to make this happen. Perhaps these are new ideas but still seem overwhelming. How can I do all this and still get through my curriculum? Creating a classroom without walls is not about expensive field trips or holding class on the soccer field; a classroom without walls is one where students open to world and world is available to the students. In this session, we will develop and practice several aspects of making your class more connected. I challenge you to learn about a technique and then try it out for yourself. Connectivity, collaboration and communication are 21st century realities; our classrooms are often behind the times. The goal of this session is develop some applications, and strategies that meet YOUR needs for YOUR students. We will discuss how to notify parents of your integrations well in advance and even get parental involvement. Come join us in the learning fun!
