Wanted! A Global Classroom!

The Global Classroom began with a simple thought:

Wouldn't it be great if our class in America could talk with other classes around the world?
What if we could talk about our lives with classrooms in other countries?

With this thought, came this tweet ~

And a wiki was born ...

The Global Classroom 2011 wiki was organised and edited by Mr Graffin, from Perth, Western Australia; and was a global collaboration between teachers across 4 timezones and 5 countries.

Thankyou to ALL the #globalclassroom participants who made this project possible.
