Connecting & Collaborating in Early Childhood (May #globalclassroom Chat)

To celebrate the publication of our first Global Classroom Project feature article, in the K-3 Class Ideas magazine here in Australia, this month’s #globalclassroom chat is dedicated to exploring the possibilities for global connections and collaboration in Early Childhood (K-3). (You can read the article here.)

Guiding Questions

We are lucky enough to have some amazing early childhood educators in the #globalclassroom community, and its time to give their stories and experiences centre stage. If you know of an early childhood educator, please let them know about these chats! We’d always enjoy meeting new faces!

  • What online communities and projects do early childhood teachers find useful for connecting and collaborating globally?

  • How do we ensure that our students have the skills and understanding necessary to participate in a global collaboration project?

  • What strategies and tools can we use to support very young children’s participation in global projects?

  • Can you share your stories and advice for K-3 teachers interested in exploring the possibilities of global connections?

  • What options are there for K-3 classrooms without reliable Internet connections to get involved in global projects?
