Classroom 2.0 LIVE! - Saturday Shows

Join us on Saturday, September 20th, when our very special guest will be Pernille Ripp. Pernille is the creator of the fabulous "Global Read Aloud Project"" and she will be sharing her experiences with the project since it was created in 2010 and will tell us how our classes and students can get involved in the project for 2014 and which books are being featured this year. If your classes have participated in previous projects we'd love to have you join us and share your stories and project links.

What is the Global Read Aloud? The project was created in 2010 with a simple goal in mind; one book to connect the world. Now with four years under our belt and more than 200,000 connections made, we realize we are on to something larger than us so we look forward to continuing the global connections. The premise is simple; we pick a book to read aloud to our students during a set 6-week period and during that time we try to make as many global connections as possible. Each teacher decides how much time they would like to dedicate and how involved they would like to be. Some people choose to connect with just one class, while others go for as many as possible. The scope and depth of the project is up to you. In the past we have used Twitter, Skype, Edmodo, our wiki, email, regular mail, Kidblog, and any other tools we can think of to make these connections. Teachers get a community of other educators to do a global project with, hopefully inspiring them to continue these connections through the year.
