Global Classroom is three!

Global Classroom is three!

#globalclassroom twitter chats are three years old!   To celebrate this month’s chat will take up the theme of “The Globally Connected Educator”. This also continues the theme of  Connected Educator month which took place during October. Karen Stadler (@ICT_Integrator) of South Africa and  Anne Mirtschin (@murcha) of Australia will c0-moderate this chat. It will take place on Sunday November 16th at 9pm, Melbourne Australia time (gmt+11) Please check timeanddate for your day and timezone. Dont forget to use the hashtag #globalclassroom with each tweet!

The following questions will be posed.

  1. What does it mean to be a globally connected educator? What does it mean to YOU personally?
  2. How do you become a global connected educator? Ideas / advice for teachers wanting to become global connected educators.
  3. What are the benefits of being a globally connected educator – why would you encourage other teachers to become globally connected?
  4. Ideas/Tips for managing your “connectedness” – one cannot be available online 24/7, so how do you get around this and find the balance? Tips from other globally connected educators.

If you cannot be part of this chat due to timezone constraints, it would be great if you can share your answers either prior to or after the chat. Use the hashtag #globalclassroom, add A1 or A2 etc to whichever question you are answering.
