As the Project Coordinator for the Global Classroom Project 2011-12, I am consistently amazed and inspired by the connections, learning, and opportunities made possible through our use of social media and web 2.0 technologies.
The Global Classroom Wiki is envisaged as a public digital repository showcasing how a global projects community enables teachers, and students, to connect, share, learn and collaborate on a global stage.
With 111 members across 6 continents, and contributions from 8 countries to date, the Global Classroom 2011-12 Wiki provides a central meeting place and collaborative community for teachers around the world.
While still in its infancy, Global Classroom bears testament to the incredible potential of wikis to showcase students’ learning & global collaboration with the wider education community. With the contributions of our teachers and students over the coming months, we believe our wiki continue to grow, evolve, inspire, and educate for many years to come.
So, as we proudly announce our Nomination for the Best Educational Wiki in the 2011 Edublogs Awards, we’d like to thank ALL the teachers who’ve contributed to the incredible development of our #globalclassroom community. Working together, we are creating something special, and we sincerely appreciate your contribution!.
