Turning information into knowledge.
We are proud to announce that our chapter submission to The Classroom 2.0 Book project is now live. With over 75 submissions from leading educators worldwide, this amazing project was organised by Steve Hargadon, Richard Byrne, and Chris Dawson of the Classroom 2.0 network.
Now, we need YOUR help!
We’d truly love to have the #globalclassroom story published in a print book for the very first time. (One day, we might write our own. Until then, this is the next best thing!)
If you could take a few minutes to read our submission, and share it with your networks, we’d be extremely grateful. The more readers we get, the more likely we are to be included.
Thank you to Deb Frazier, Theresa Allen, Effie Kyrikakis, and Kyle Dunbar whose contributions made this chapter submission possible. We hope you enjoy reading our #globalclassroom stories.

As part of Classroom 2.0’s 5th Anniversary, they are calling for submissions for their anniversary book. Here is the Global Classroom Project 2012-2013’s submission. It’s a wonderful project!
“The Global Classroom Project is not your ordinary classroom project. It is a grassroots teaching and learning community connecting hundreds of K-12 teachers, and thousands of students, around the world. Spanning 6 continents, this project is an amazing example of how teachers can come together using social media and Web 2.0 technologies to flatten their classroom walls; enabling their students to share, learn, and collaborate globally.”
This past May we introduced you to the Finding Solutions to Hunger project, a collaborative, interdisciplinary project that teaches students to explore the issues around hunger and poverty from all perspectives through hands on activities that are action oriented to make a difference. This week Kids Can Make A Difference, an iEARN partner, launched a set of videos showing how the project works in classrooms and the impact it is having:
