Global Mentors Project: Connecting Student Teachers with Mentors from Around the World

This session tells the story of how teacher education students from Virginia  participated in the Global Mentors Project during their early field experience placements in 2017. In a two-month time frame, the project paired student teachers with mentor teachers from Taiwan, Russia, England, Australia, Thailand, and India. Student teachers completed a Globes for Peace project between classrooms, shared school cultures through media and artifacts, interacted on Facebook, and learned how global projects enhance competencies when a teacher operates not only locally, but with others from around the world. Attendees will learn how global projects fit with local curriculum and enhance student engagement not only with academics, but also by developing a curiosity and understanding of the world. Attendees will be able to use this presentation as a model for getting started and interacting with other classrooms around the world.
