The Asia Society has again created a terrific opportunity for schools to think about how to create global citizens through a variety of activities.
I was pleased to be invited to present two sessions, both nearly filled to capacity this year.
My PPT slides are posted at: http://scr.bi/q06fbT
(The slides show some of what I showed live from the Internet.)
ePals is the largest and fastest growing online community of K12 learners in the world, in 200 countries and translating to 58 languages.
It's free to join the global community and to find your teacher partners from around the globe, free to participate in projects. Your students can read posts by other students and view work of other students in multiple formats without any username or account. For student work to be posted, or for them to post questions or answers to the worldwide forum, you will have to provide them (free) student accounts.
If you want to know more about how to use the free tools of ePals, sign up for an ePals 101 webinar: http://epals.101.sgizmo.com
Or learn on your own through brief tutorials: http://bit.ly/learnePals
ePals also sells robust technology communication products including SchoolMail365 and LearningSpace. (These are not covered in the ePals 101 webinar.) If you want to learn more, go to http://corp.epals.com.
