Thank you to everyone!  Our second graders at New Kent Elementary will be studying Ancient Egypt and China in the fall. They will also be going to Jamestown Historical Village on a field trip. We were hoping to share some of our local history with another class and learn their local history. The teachers are currently planning the projects. I will pass along all your help to them so they can reach out with the specifics.

education begins at home, if you do not respect yourself, then can not tolerate your parents so if you do so you are so going to fail in the terms of your life

incredibly proud of my students' initiative. Made our CBC National News! Environmental stewardship, innovation, math problem solving, global connections, making a difference. Their story has it all! Please read, share our story and join my class in helping to make a difference!

Keurig K-Cups will be clogging up landfills until at least 2020. But a Grade 6 class in Thunder Bay, Ont., has found an innovative re-use for them — helping students build prisms and solve math problems in class.

About this community

Please post only content that is related to the mission of our conference. This is a moderated community. The Global Education Conference is a collaborative, world-wide community initiative involving students, educators, and organizations at all levels. It is designed to significantly increase opportunities for building education-related connections around the globe while supporting cultural awareness, recognition of diversity, and educational access for all. The conference seeks to present ideas, examples, and projects related to connecting educators and classrooms with a strong emphasis on promoting global awareness, fostering global competency, and inspiring action towards solving real–world problems. Through this event, it is our hope that attendees will challenge themselves and others to become more active citizens of the world. Let us learn, question, create, and engage in meaningful, authentic opportunities within a global context! If you are an educator and looking to engage with another classroom, here are a few tips: 1) Create a post here and/or in our main online community (http://globaleducationconference.com) containing specific details of what you'd like to accomplish. 2) Include a project web site, length of the project, learning objectives, grade levels sought and expectations for participation. 3) The more structured and specific you are in your requests, the more likely you'll find project partners. 4) Once you've described your project, the admin of this group will also post your opportunity to GlobalEdCon's various social media channels.

Test out this cool tool called Flipgrid and share any global projects that you have going on. Also, if you'll be at Global Education Day at ISTE, introduce yourself in Flipgrid. See this linked post for more details.
