How you choose to participate in the #globalclassroom community is up to you; however, we strongly encourage teachers to formally register for Global Classroom 2012-13, AND join this wiki.
This enables us to keep accurate records, and helps us connect international teachers working in similar subject / learning areas / year levels. (If you need to update your registration details, please email us at globalclassroomorganisers AT gmail.com.
Teachers, ICT Integrators, School Administrators
If you teach multiple year levels, please join as many groups as you feel appropriate.
We usually process & respond to new registrations within 7-10 days.
We are dedicated to supporting teachers’ learning & connections as they explore new ways to integrate global perspectives, and flatten their classroom walls. Whether you need help starting out, or are an experienced global collaborator keen to build your own project, we are here to help.
We provide Contact Directories & online Community Spaces to help teachers find potential collaboration partners, and connect with Global Classroom Mentor Teachers, and you can learn more about our current projects via our blog, or projects list on our wiki. If you’d like to join a project, please contact the project leader using the details on the “project page”.
When you’ve registered (and joined the wiki), you’re invited to share a Teacher and Classroom Handshake - introducing your class to the #globalclassroom community. You can find out more details about this special project here (complete with examples and video tutorials). And don’t forget to join our Teacher Community Spaces!
If you have a story or project to share, you are welcome to guest post on our blog, and/or add a project description to our wiki (this one). We’ll help publicise your work through our extensive social networks, introduce you to people working on similar ideas / subject areas, and provide assistance if you need it.
We are interested in showcasing your classroom stories, students’ learning, local communities, and cultures with authentic global audiences. We are happy to guest-post articles from teachers’ and class blogs; and are particularly keen to feature stories from your students – helping to make their voices heard on the world stage.
Working together, we can flatten our classroom walls, and enable our students’ to become active, informed, collaborative global citizens.
