Global Visits is looking for university instructors who would be interested in working with university instructors in the United States on classroom projects, using the Internet as the tool to link the two classrooms and instructors. Projects could be how ever each instructor would like to have them develop and integrated into the regular course or syllabus. The idea is to open the global door for students who might not otherwise have a chance to engage in a traditional study abroad, but have a profound need to engage in a global project. Since 2003, we have linked students from the US with students from Afghanistan, the Middle East and Africa via the Internet and our work was recognized by the Institute of International Education at their 4th Annual Best Practices Conference in 2009. Come to our web site , take a look, sign up (you will not be spammed!!) and please introduce yourself to me. I would like to meet you. I am meeting an increasing number of US instructors who want to connect their classroom, and I hope you are interested! Betty Tonsing, Founder/President, Global Visits www.globalvisits.com

I'm a teacher in Calgary, Alberta helping a group of grade 8 students at my school conduct a global survey on worldviews. I'm wondering if you might be willing to take this survey (less than 5 mins) and perhaps spread it around - particularly with your students. We're trying to get as many non-North American respondents as we can.
A good teacher makes last bench students listen curiously and teach to their maximum understanding of subject by telling short story or by doing action or mimicry or by showing the picture. Its our duty to give education to the students who wish to learn but it is a dream to them - rajeshlane
