5 Ways to Connect a Class to the World

 

For the interactive version of this video in TouchCast click HERE.

Teaching the YouTube Generation without providing kids the opportunity to create content would be absurd.  However, connecting kids to meaningful learning experiences that include other learners around the world is not always associated with traditional practice (unless you count pen pals).  This TouchCast Ambassador video provides a short (3 minute) synopsis of how a class could tap into video as a transformational learning tool.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I’ve been using TouchCast for approximately three years.  This year I am partnering with them as a Star Ambassador and paid consultant.  TouchCast is a free app and I am not selling anything, but I want this partnership to be clear to readers. 

Heads-up: The Adjusting Course blog has a new home.  Check it out at www.BradGustafson.com and subscribe so you don’t miss a beat!
