I would love to collaborate with you, however my 5th grade class and I have a huge commitment with Global Virtual Classrooms where we are involved with two other participating schools in building a website on a specific theme. Please consider me for future endeavors.
Hi Dan, I appreciate the invitation. I am teaching Mathematics to Afrikaans speaking kids in South Africa. The only thing is that I am very new at social networking. The other concern that I have is that we have a very full curriculum and I do not have much class time to spare. If the above concerns are not a problem, I will be happy to be part of the project.
I’ve seen your blog that I’ve found very interesting. You are a very original and effective teacher, I enjoyed a lot your nice videos, many compliments!! I hope now is getting better regarding your injury, I wish you a quick recovery!!!
I’m very interested to cooperate in your cultural project, I teach English in a primary School near Assisi, I have 8 classes from 6 year to 11 year aged.
Thank you very much for your invitation. Your activity is great for your students giving them the ability to learn about other cultures and nations. Unfortunately I can't participate now. Maybe later in the next school year. I hope your activity will be succesfull. Greetings from Greece
Thank you for your invitation. I teach grade 4 until grade 9 this semester and I am the class teacher of grade 6. I would love to participate in your activity. Please let me know more about it. My blog is: http://inesogura.weebly.com
We can definitely come up with some form of collaboration. I know that my students would love it! I will be in touch about some possibilities, and we can go from there:) Thanks for being so open and flexible!
Hi, Dan. Thanks for your response. I work at an Independent all-boys' school where they each have their own laptops that they travel from class to class with. It is wonderful how we can implement so much technology because of this, so we definitely use computers daily. The three best technology websites and tools? Hmmmmm, that would have to be our class Wiki where we collaborate with students within and outside of our school on various writing assignments. We use VoiceThread which is a great way to post pictures and have the students to add their voice. This is also a way to get feedback from others around the country. Glogster.com is fabulous where the students can create their own glogs and add links to supporting websites of the information they are posting. This is like a digital poster board. Animoto is a great way to showcase work as music is added for effect. One of the coolest non-linear ways to present information is prezi.com. This is better than Powerpoints and the students love the visual effects for presenting information. Please feel free to collaborate on any assignments that you currently have going on. I would love to help in any way that I can. Even though I teach 5th grade, the boys are learning 6th grade material, and we could possibly get our students to work together on something in the future. Have your students ever skyped before? It is a great way to make global connections and gain new perspectives.
