Global Collaboration for Local Impact

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Using various social media platforms such as Twitter, Voxer and Blogging, we bring people together to grow as educators and also as learners. Mindset is at the heart of what we are able to achieve and accomplish. Through communication and collaboration, we become lead learners who bring the global world to our local classrooms.

Participants during this session will be able to:
- take away practical ideas and resources to apply to their own global learning.
- engage in dialogue with those in attendance that will force them to grow their minds in the way they think about their own professional learning.
- develop resources of professionals that will support them in their learning once they leave BLC.
- participants will have access to the Lead Learning team for ongoing personal professional development.
- be inspired to apply what they learn and make connections with colleagues from all corners of the globe.
