Connecting Your Classroom to the World

Global SchoolNet: "Global SchoolNet's mission is to support 21st century learning. We engage teachers and students in meaningful project learning exchanges with people around the world to develop literacy and communication skills, foster teamwork and collaboration, encourage workforce preparedness and create multi-cultural understanding. We prepare youth for full participation as productive and effective citizens in an increasing global economy."

Apple Learning Interchange: Find ideas for classroom activities, connect with peers through searching, messaging, iChat and collaborative publication tools, and submit projects as simple as classroom snapshots or as complex as multi-page abstracts for assessment, enhancement, and peer review.

International Education and Resource Network: "the world's largest non-profit global network that enables teachers and young people to use the Internet and other new technologies to collaborate on projects that both enhance learning and make a difference in the world."

Telecollaborate: "The Internet offers us an immediate way to join together, telecollaborating with educators and students around the world. Here at NickNacks, we can help, whether you want to participate in a telecollaboration or start your own, with information to help you and projects to join."
