Bringing it All Together


The six jobs described below outline concrete ways that your students can make valuable contributions to their learning community. While these jobs can be successfully implemented individually, it is bringing them together in harmony where, I believe, you might find the most success in developing a powerful global learning team.

Thoughts for Planning (Developed by Brian Mull)


What resources are available?

What search queries would help me find them?

Who might my students be able to connect with?

How might they connect?

What tools best fit here?

What RSS feeds might I want to subscribe to?

What cross-curricular connections can be made?

What creative outlets might students want to use?
