Hi! I teach students from 8 to 18.

It is very interesting to communicate and collaborate.

Projects could be worked together!

have you all seen the document your day project? it's on 11.11.11, and asks students to videotape part of their day - a global project that is exciting! here's the link:

I've recently founded a Mightybell experience, on Bringing the World into your Classroom. Please join and spread the word - and your ideas and resources!

Hi there!

Is anyone interested in having some video conference with some students from Guadalajara, Mexico? If so, please contact me: fefevar@gmail.com

We look forward to exchanging some cultural ideas about our country Mexico although I was born and raised in Bolivia.

See you e-round...
