In this Ignite! session, learn about one teacher’s experience using second-hand computers in a low-tech classroom to help at-risk students find their voices and develop 21st century skills. – Suzy Cox

Connecting Globally and Locally as Educators

Written by Tricia Jackson on . Posted in #UCET17

We live in a day where teaching is no longer limited to the four physical walls of your classroom, or even your school building. We can connect with people across the globe and increase the chances of our students becoming global citizens. How can we make sure we are connecting safely as well as teaching our students to do the same? Do we have to always think globally or are there resources that are available more locally as well? We need to make sure and take the time and effort to both reach out to the world as well as nurture the face to face connections we have available to us in our own backyards. – http://EdTechBabble.net – Derek Larson
