About Me or Reason for Joining the GEC:
I have been working with iEARN and OAS to conduct a 21st Century Teacher Education Course online. We are trying to expand the use of project based learning such as the iEARN projects around the world. One basic way of doing this is to provide beginning teachers with an understanding of the value of global collaboration with other teachers and the value international exchange can have for their own students. I am co teaching with a colleague in Suriname, Betty Burgos. We would like to share our experiences with this course and the dialog of 29 teachers from 19 countries.
