Join us for a session presented by a pair of middle school teachers — one from the San Francisco Bay Area and one from Johannesburg, South Africa. They united to create authentic, curriculum-based opportunities for their students, who participated in a 3-part, virtual exchange. Leveraging emerging technologies, they connected 70 students separated by a time difference of 9 hours and a distance of over 10,000 miles to forge new partnerships, exchange ideas, and analyze literature. Students also gave and received valuable and relevant feedback from partners on their creative writing. Session participants will hear from both the teachers and the students.
