There are an abundance of learning opportunities implicit in a connected world. Tools now exist that make it possible for even our earliest learners to communicate with people and classrooms outside of their building, city or country. Primary students, too, can be global learners. We’ll talk about the “why’s”, curriculum connections and the practicalities of how to make it work in YOUR classroom.

You’ll leave with:

* a list of tools that help young children to connect

* ideas for using connections to enrich your curriculum

* suggestions for choosing an effective blogging tool

* an online handout with the material from the presentation
