Free webinar gives an overview of how K12 teachers and students can use the free tools of ePals to collaborate with another classroom in a different district, state, or across the globe.
* How do you find partner classrooms, using the ePals Global Community of 20+ million users in 200 countries and territories?
* Once you have found a match, how can you use the free, safe and secure ePals SchoolMail for communication? This includes language translation into 58 languages and teacher monitoring features not available in gmail or other mass market email systems.
* What are the free ePals projects? How can your student work in Digital Storytelling be posted for viewing by a worldwide audience?
* How do the Project Forums for teachers and students help enrich the projects? (How can students use them outside of school, safely without teacher supervision?)
By the end of this one-hour webinar, you will know how to find a match, how to set up safe email accounts for your K12 students and faculty, and whether you want to participate in a free ePals project and more.
Starting time is 4:15 p.m. Eastern (3:15 p.m. Central, 1:15 p.m. Pacific).
