Tool #7 Going Global

Many of the tools explored seem to be rather advanced for Pre-K children and very labor intensive for the classroom teacher. GlobalSchoolNet and Class2Class-math projects seem to be outdated and if anything is recreated they would need to be PK specific.

The tool that I believe to be most usable to get us out of the classroom is to create and then invite participants to Skype. Most likely PK/K teachers in the district and in other districts, possibly a PK center in Aldine.

It is very exciting to help the students to the experience of going global and flattening the walls to the classroom.

Think of things that you can use to help you communicate with parents...or an activity that you may do more "teacher directed" Skyping would be a good thing to try...think of experts to bring into your classroom.
