Thank you to everyone who has participated or is working on connecting with another school through the Around the World with 80 Schools project.
For many of you this is the first time Skyping with another class and I applaud you in taking the first step. The benefits for your students AND you are incredible.
Through twitter and blog posts, I am hearing about these connections you are making.Â PLEASE document your journey in one way or another.
Write about and reflect on the experience and learning that took place.

We are pioneers in making these global connections with our students and can only imagine the benefits for the future.
Many schools have programs like Skype blocked or have administrators who do not support “time wasted” on non-tangible, non- standardized test preparations.
How can you document your journey and experience?
- Enter info about your connection on project’s wiki on Your Journey
- Blog about it (please add “AroundTheWorldWith80Schools” tag)
- Bookmark to Del.icio.us (“AroundTheWorldWith80Schools” tag)
- Send me an e-mail or twitter and I can add you info
I hope it isn’t too late to join this wonderful project and connect with some schools. I have been clicking around and can’t figure out/remember what to do to officially join you so I’m hoping a comment here will do the trick! Please let me know what else to do. Thanks so much!
The project’s wiki can be found here. You can find the Google form to sign up there too.
