Pernille Ripp, a seventh grade teacher at Oregon Middle School in Wisconsin, took "a spark of an idea" - to connect students and teachers worldwide by reading one single book aloud - and turned it into a successful global collaboration project. Just wrapping up its fifth year, Global Read Aloud has connected more than 500,000 learners in 60 countries.
#ISTE Webinar TODAY! "Building Global Collaboration in the High School Classroom" 7 pm CDT https://t.co/zr4VmquZle #unidsm #ISTEglobalPLN
In recent years the Berea District in Ohio have been on a mission to change ‘local’ into ‘global’. This presentation will share the steps taken to move one high school and a district toward true collaboration. The journey of starting small and growing over time will be addressed as specific examples of technology integration and collaboration are shared. In addition, participants will gain practical strategies, learn more about resources, and take away a deeper understanding of how to connect and collaborate within and beyond their own learning environment.

Interesting article about global project based learning in the latest ISTE online magazine.
To introduce students to the process of going from idea to design to printing, I showed them a video that described how 3D printing works. The printer allows users to manufacture an object using a digital modeling program or by downloading a design from Makerbot’s Thingaverse site.
Next, I showed students three videos from Makerbot’s site about explorers who have used 3D printing to invent, create, refine and benefit humanity. Technology enabled many of these inventors to collaborate across continents. In the case of Spuni, they set out to improve the design of baby spoons. With Zboard, 3D printing helped entrepreneurs make their products by facilitating the iterative process of design. "
