You have the ability to connect with MANY teachers looking to break down the walls of their classrooms - just like Jemma and I are.
We live in a connected world - being connected is integrated into the lives our our learners seamlessly and we can provide massive opportunities for our learners to do this in our classrooms PURPOSEFULLY.
Nine days ago I received a tweet from @vanderclass
Here was another opportunity to connect our learners with others in Toronto to have a Mystery Hangout. COULDN'T RESIST!
So Christine and I 'kept in touch' and had our own GHO on Sunday morning to make sure the technology worked!
Tuesday morning at 8am.
About 6 or 7 kids came to class early to participate in this Mystery Google Hangout with Christine's class (in Milton, Toronto)
The kids were brilliant - from both classes. I must say we were impressed with Christine's class who were VERY organised with their 'roles' and professionalism! Hahahaha.
There is no more exciting way to start the morning that by connecting with kids on the other side of the world!
And so begins another magical connection with another passionate teacher providing her learners with 'real' shared experiences by breaking down the walls of her classroom.
Thanks Christine and your wonderful kids - we look forward to staying in touch via blogs, twitter and another Hangout soon:)
