The past year has been yet another exciting journey for the hundreds of students and teachers participating in the Global Classroom Project!
We have connected via Skype, letters, journals, Google Hangouts, email, wikispaces and more. Students and teachers learned about global and digital citizenship by participating in projects. We continue to grow and learn each year, but more importantly, we continue to be inspired by the incredible passion of children and their teachers across the world.
Please join us for a very special ceremony as we mark the conclusion of a memorable year in our annual “Looking Forwards, Looking Back” webinars. Many of our project managers and lead teachers will reflect and share their projects and stories. These webinars will be a opportunity for teachers to learn more about global projects, or who are looking for some inspiration and connections to create a project of their very own.
The recipients of the Global Classroom Lead Teacher Awards will be announced and formally recognised at this event.
Join us in celebrating our journey in breaking down the walls of our classrooms!
The closing webinars will be held on Friday, August 15, and Saturday August 16, in BlackBoard Collaborate.
