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.

"Emmerson: I enjoyed this session because we got to link up with kids the same age as us and they lived in a different country. I think this is a good way to learn about China because we get to learn new facts about the country from people that live in china."

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.
