I will be presenting  a session on Wednesday, November 16 at 6pm EST on Powerful Web Tools for Elementary Global Collaboration. In this session, you can discover powerful web tools and best practices for allowing even our youngest learners to collaborate across a classroom or around the world.

This year, make it a priority to participate in at least one Global Initiative, reminding your students that the world is their classroom instead of the four walls they may be used to seeing!
