3 RESOURCES TO START YOUR GLOBAL COLLABORATION

  • Epals is a free resource that allows educators to easily find other classrooms interested in collaborations. They also partner with educational institutions like the Smithsonian and National Geographic to build relationships between adults with expertise and students.
  • The Interactive Educational and Resource Network (iEARN-USA) connects youth around the world to one another to promote cultural understanding and learning. The site allows educators to design projects that fit curriculum requirements and focus on building a global community.
  • The Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration (CILC) connects classrooms through videoconferencing. Educators can list the kind of interaction they’d like on the website and teachers elsewhere can pick a project they are interested in pursuing.
