Stories Around the World
Our class is participating in a global project called Stories Around the World. This is a group blog where 11 classes from around the world can share their stories all in one place.
Our stories come from 5 countries across 3 continents in both the northern and southern hemispheres. We hope to use technology as tool to enrich student learning as we flatten our classroom walls.
Here is a map showing the locations of all the participating classrooms.
Even if your class is not creating posts for this blog, we still welcome and encourage you and your class to leave us a comment . Much thanks to everyone who has already supported us!
Thank you for being a part of our learning!
Have you taken part in a global project before? What was it about?
Do you have any tips to share with us on global collaboration?
