Session Description:
The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) has developed internationally accepted standards for technology use and skills for students, teachers, administrators, coaches and computer science teachers, which all have a component (with the exception of computer science teachers) about connecting and collaborating with people from other cultures on a global scale. But, where do you even start to find another classroom in another place around the world? What can you do once you find them? In this session, you will work through resources and tools to get you started with global collaboration projects by looking at collaborative features in Google Apps for Education and Google Hangouts, resources to find other classrooms, and types of projects you could do with those classrooms.
Learning Objectives:
  • Teachers will understand the importance of global collaboration to help prepare students for jobs of the future.
  • Teachers will become familiar with ISTE standards for teachers and students, with a focus on the global collaboration
  • Teachers will learn about tools and explore resources so they can find teachers, with whom to connect their classrooms and implement global collaboration activities with students.
