Hello, Hola, Ni hao!

I am a just turned 13 year old American trilingual who has spent my primary years traveling the world and becoming fluent in Chinese and Spanish through travel.

I've been to 45 countries on 5 continents so far, so have lots of great stories to tell and would love to share them with your classrooms. ( I have done that some and we even took a large group of disadvantaged kids with us virtually one year...and we met them in person too).

I am doing my first presentation next week for globaled13 and would love to connect because I too have a passion for global edcuation!

Hi Liz, Sorry I have delayed in replying to you. Summer flew by and I have already completed 2 weeks of the new school year! I hope my responses help you:

1. What does your partnership curriculum look like?

My class participates in projects created by educators around the world. We design the projects to ensure that curriculum standards are embedded within the projects. 

2. What best practices do you favor?

Best practices include integrating technology whenever possible. 

3. How is the work received in the classroom? in faculty meetings? by parents?

Students enjoy the work and parents are very supportive. My principal is also very supportive.

4. What assessments are in place?

District-required assessments in all subjects are unavoidable, but informal assessments are ongoing as the students participate in global projects. 

5. What community have you found among colleagues? 

I use Twitter to communicate with different communities. I participate in several Twitter chats including #2ndchat, #globalclassroom, #geniushour, #tlap, etc. I also am part of the Hello Little World Skypers group and several other groups like the Global Ed Con Network. 

6. Which resources have been most useful?

Being part of professional communities allows me to learn from other educators.

I have been a global teacher for over 35 years of primary aged students.  In 2009, I won the National Council of Social Studies "Outstanding Elementary Social Studies Teacher of the Year."  I have many products for sale on Teachers Pay Teachers that will help teachers promote global learning.  http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Marcy-Prager

I am not just promoting products here.  I truly believe that global learning should start at an early age.  There is such a push for Middle Schoolers, and not enough attention is given to the early years.  Integrating Language Arts and Social Studies is the way to teach informative texts and align with the rigor of the Common Core Standards.  I have worked hard to promote global learning! I am always encouraged when I see others with the same passion.  Global learning is not just having a pen-pal from another country.  It is about the depth of learning that can occur about other cultures so that a healthy respect and understanding can occur globally in order to achieve world peace in our future.

Hello all - 

Over the summer I have been studying schools/programs that have international partnerships and are striving to make relevant global connections. Essentially I am trying to put together a resource guide of best practices for myself and my colleagues. I am wondering if you (all) can help me make connections with other educators.

I am looking to answer the following questions:

1. What does your partnership curriculum look like?

2. What best practices do you favor?

3. How is the work received in the classroom? in faculty meetings? by parents?

4. What assessments are in place?

5. What community have you found among colleagues? 

6. Which resources have been most useful?

Many thanks for your consideration!

Liz

Hi Louise,

I tried to open your #ISTE13 is Finally Here! post and got an error message. When I looked at the URL I was directed to, I realized the colon after http was missing. So I added it to the address and found your post. 

I see that you got your slidedeck upload to Slideshare and it looks great. Sunday is going to be a very exciting day. I'll be there to help spread the word about our group. See you very soon.

I am looking forward to meeting you all at #iste13!  The Global Classroom breakout group will be brainstorming projects for the 2013-14 school year.
