Global Connection CPD


Internet connectivity in educational settings provides opportunities for interactive exchange and collaboration between students living on other sides of the planet! These synchronous, real-time discussions using free software like “Skype” can tangibly expand the walls of the traditional classroom and engage students to write, share, and communicate with an authentic audience inaccessible just a few years ago. On Tuesday 25th March, 2014 we explored just this at an IPACA Engage, Innovate and Inspire CPD session. We were very lucky to be joined on Skype for the session by  Jon Tait, better known as @TeamTait on Twitter who is Assistant Headteacher at the Wooodham Academy, Durham.

Jon shared with us how to build meaningful connections between your classroom and the world! See below for this session in full -
