Just think: the ENTIRE WORLD lies beyond our classroom. Wouldn't it be a shame if we missed it?
What do you mean, Ms. Guyot? Are you talking about Global Education again?!
If you mean Skyping with a museum curator in Cairo, then...
YES! Real Global Educational Experiences!
Virtually visiting a sea turtle rehabilitation center in South Carolina... Learning - from these professionals first-hand - about conservation, fragile ecosystems different from our own, and the importance of biodiversity.
Exchanging mail with people from other backgrounds... like "Middle America" workers that we hear about on TV... Getting a chance to tell them about us and learn about their daily lives, too.
Seeing technology from inside a lab, as we talk to engineers... Adding meaning to more than our Science lessons, but to our understanding of people and their impact on the world and each other!
These shared, enriching experiences and more... all from the "confines" of our 21st Century classroom!
