This webinar is part of the October 2015 ISTE Professional Learning Series.

Come join this exciting webinar and learn how to use digital tools to easily connect your students to other students and classes around the world! We will talk about different tools (e.g., Book Creator, Hopscotch, Thinglink, Google Apps, etc) and projects that students as young as Pre-K can use to build relationships with students in partner classes around the world. We will also discuss the benefits of creating a global classroom starting in the early grades and showcase some project examples.

Presented by the ISTE Early Learning Network.
