Presentation Title
“Travel through Space and Time”
Global awareness is making its way into the educational landscape. We are recognizing that our students are growing up in a “flat world” and cannot afford to live isolated from learning about other languages, cultures, traditions and points of view. The presenter took over 400 students and their teachers along…virtually…as she traveled physically half way around the world to China. Learn how, through the power of web 2.0 tools, she seamlessly combined a blog, podcasts, photos and videos to educate students about cultural universals, while addressing curriculum standards.
