Connect and Collaborate - Save the Dates!

As you begin to plan for the school year, there are several collaborative projects for 2014. These projects are engaging, authentic and a great way to take your class beyond the 4 walls.

This is by no means an extensive list, but it's several of my favorites. If you know of others or have a collaborative project you would like to share, please add it to the comments! I'll add it to the Google Doc - see below.

Join 1 or join all!

International Dot Day

Jen has numerous ways to integrate all subjects. My favorite - MYSTERY SKYPE

Adventure '14 aims to bring thousands of learners from across the world closer together, to get to know and understand each other, to break down barriers, and to help prepare them for the evolution of the global neighbo(u)rhood.

Hour of Code  - December 8-14th
An opportunity for every student to try computer science for one hour.

I created a Google doc with the information about these projects. Feel free to grab it!  I'll be adding new projects as I find or hear about them.

Happy collaborating and connecting globally!
