Hello from Laval!
I am writing from a CEFRIO workshop taking place in Laval. This morning we talked about different technology tools we can use to collaborate on educational projects.
What is interesting is that a number of the tools discussed are already in use in our classroom, but within the group. We aren't using the tools to reach out and work with other classes for larger projects.
For the rest of the month, we will be studying the Loyalists, and how the movement north after the American Revolution. I have asked the organizers of this workshop to send out a call to other teachers to see if there is someone in the former 13 Colonies willing to participate in a discussion about the conflict between the Patriots and the Loyalists, and to look at how the events of that period affected our respective countries.
I know that there are people following the blog who are teachers from afar. Anyone interested in having our students collaborate?
