Users of Blackboard Collaborate
I would like to use Blackboard Collaborate to virtually "shake hands across the globe." My students have made some contacts with a school in Switzerland and this fall both schools hope to also be making contact with a school in Mali. I believe students will be more compassionate human beings and better-equipped 21st century learners by making those connections, breaking down stereotypes and better understanding our common humanity. Kids love to share with each other, and my students have been very excited to begin exchanging ideas with one another. All can share their interests, their thoughts and their aspirations in both French and English.
