Was not expecting this, but truly honored to be named as a Global Classroom Lead Teacher and looking forward to contributing and collaborating more with the Global Classroom in 2013-14 from China.
There is an old Maori Proverb that I feel suits the Global Classroom Project and why it works.
He aha te mea nui?
Which translates to:
What is the most important thing? It is people, it is people, it is people.
Kiaora and thank you.
We’d like to formally congratulate the Global Classroom Lead Teachers for 2012-13.
We are proud to work with such an amazing group of international educators, who are shining examples of teachers who “connect, learn, share, collaborate and lead globally”.
This year, our Lead Teachers were nominated by the #globalclassroom community and @gcporganisers, recognising their special contribution to the development and success of the #globalclassroom community.
Over the course of 2012-13, our Lead Teachers have made:
- Significant contributions to the professional learning of teachers around the world (through our blog & Twitter chats)
- Inspired efforts to enhance their students’ learning through their global connections
- Assisted with the development and maintenance of the #globalclassroom online learning spaces
- Created innovative, pioneering projects which showcase new ways for teachers and students to connect, learn, share, and collaborate globally.
New and experienced global educators alike, we highly recommend adding our #globalclassroom Lead Teachers to your PLNs.
