ePals For the New School Year
One of the most exciting ways to include global connections in your teaching is literally to connect your class with a class in another world region.
I"ve mentioned ePals in another posting, but it's well worth mentioning again, now that the new school year is underway. If you're worried about how you're going to find another class on the other side of the world, you can select and one easily on ePals. If you're worried about what project you might work on together, you can find one (dozens!) to choose from on ePals. And, as I've mentioned before, it's free.
So there you go. No more excuses.
If you still need convincing, listen to some young people talk about communicating globally. These could be your students. Click on the ePals site here and scroll down.
