I do apologize for my voice during this podcast. I had a bit of a head cold as of late. I hope to be back to normal soon.
In order to go global in your classroom and develop a real world audience, you have to first understand WHY you need to go global and bring in a real world audience. I believe there are four key reasons WHY you need to connect with the world and bring down your classroom walls before you learn HOW to accomplish this goal.
- 1. Power of One
- 2. Idea Generated Jobs
- 3. Real World Skills
- 4. It is our reality
This podcast will address why these four reasons are so important for understanding why we need to expand our classroom boundaries to a global perspective.
I will be creating a future podcast about HOW to do this and share my experience and journey from starting very small to where I am today. There is not enough time in one podcast to do both.
- How do you increase your audience to reach more people in a global classroom?
- How can I develop myself as an educator to bring exposure to my teaching practices for real world or global classrooms?
- Still looking for suggestions for a 10-15 second theme song.
- If you are interested in connecting for a podcast let me know. I am always open to ideas so if there is something I share online via the #coffeechugPLN, this blog or elsewhere that you want to know more about please let me know.
