The April #globalclassroom chats were an interesting affair, with our Sunday Asia / Europe chat being by far the liveliest. I was particularly interested in how the question was interpreted, as teachers shared the challenges they face in using & sharing technology – both in developing and developed countries.

And, in his own words, Jason Graham’s thoughts on his first #globalclassroom chat
In my first #globalclassroom experience, I was honoured to moderate such an interesting chat with such passionate educators from around the globe. I learned a lot and came away with some new ideas, different perspectives and new inquiries.
My big takeaway: If technology divides, what can be done to ensure technology connects?
How can we use technology to bridge the gap and lessen the divide between not only our colleagues next to us, but between those who have less access and opportunities to share and connect?
I look forward to the next #globalclassroom chat. Thanks to everyone for making me a better educator.
