#globalclassroom Chat: Going Global…. Slowly But Surely!

Slow, slow, slowly! It’s the theme for this month’s chat and we decided on it for two reasons:

1. Instead of holding chats at two different times this weekend, we are diving into the world of slow chats and hosting our very first one!

2. When educators first start working towards district, school, and personal global goals, some of their initial questions revolve around the what and the how. What do I do? How do I get started? Time and time again, we hear experienced and dedicated global educators advising teachers to start slowly and to take baby steps. Slowly but surely, each little step will lead to another step in the journey of a global educator!

So this month’s chat is a slow one – a slow chat focused on getting started as a global educator! Whether you are just diving into the world of global education or you have been going global for years, each one of you has something to contribute to this chat and we hope that you will pop in and share your expertise throughout the day.
