It is always rewarding and exciting to receive comments left on my blog posts or submitted through the blog contact form. Lately I have been getting comments or requests from educators to connect with other educators to collaborate on global projects. Below is a request to connect with other teachers for an exciting global collaboration project.
I have been a Social Studies teacher for 17 years and I have taught technology for 12 years. I have started many educational programs in several school districts and I have a graduate certification in Network Administration from Denver Technical College as well as a degree in History from Florida Atlantic University. I am doing this with no corporate affiliation.
I am putting together a program called The Global Nation Project for Colorado Springs School District 11, which includes having our students use our distance labs, teleconferencing, and all the latest technologies to work with students around the world in collaborative projects involving the topic of Globalization. Our students would use technology to teach each other about the uniqueness of their regions geography, history, economy, and other pertinent areas.
In an age where instant communication with people all over the world has become a common event we still have misunderstandings between us that impede our ability to have an honest open dialogue. We teachers have a responsibility to instill in our students the desire and ability to appreciate the uniqueness of the cultures of the world.
Could you put me in touch with educators that would be interested in this undertaking? Come visit my website and add your comments, pictures, and videos on the topic of Globalization. Your contributions will be part of the unit we are creating. Please take a moment and tell us what you think about the subject in the FORUM or BLOG area. Thank you so much for contributing to this venture.
