Creating global connections within an educational environment
Teaching, Learning and Technology
Pittsford Central School District
Ever wonder what a one roomed schoolhouse might look like in a global village? Come spend three hours together where we can learn how to use certain tools along with an active internet connection to begin to connect our students on a global scale. Teachers will learn how to use ePals to make a global connection with teachers and students from around the world. Google Earth will be used to learn more about their connection classroom and their environment and geography. Teachers will then learn how to set up a learning environment in Moodle for the use of collaborating together through embedded multimedia, RSS feeds
and WIKI's. If a video conference connection is not a possibility because of varying time zones, then our teachers will be trained how to capture video using a Flip Camera
and embed this into their Moodle for a more authentic connection with their global peers.
