I love the idea of connecting with classrooms around the world and "flattening our walls". We have already used someof these tools this year, such as sharing in Google docs, and Edmodo for our cadres. If I were to start doing something like this, I would like to start small, and once comfortable, eventually branch out. An example project could be:
- Content objective: LA: reading comprehension/book recommendations
- When you plan to implement: Spring semester
- What tool(s) you plan to use: Skype or Edmodo
- A brief description of the project : Get with another 3rd grade class in the district. Have a forum to discuss our read aloud or independent reaading books and recommend books back and forth.
