Pre-Service Teachers Preparing to Hit the Ground Running as Global Educators

November 8, 2012

Pre-Service teachers enrolled in the integrated business/technology teacher education program at Red River College are experiencing global education in a real way. They are working as the lead teachers in the Eracism project, one of the Flat Classroom Projects founded by Julie Lindsay and Vicki Davis. The pre-service teachers are gaining the experience of flattening classrooms and will take this invaluable education and experience into their classrooms to continue the move to global collaboration one step at a time, regardless of the curriculum topic. Their instructor, Eva Brown, is a Flat Classroom Certified teacher and a Microsoft Innovative teacher who believes that global collaboration must be a literacy in every curriculum. Pre-service teachers will share their experiences about their involvement in this project and the importance of global education as a literacy in all curriculum areas on November 14th at 10:00 a.m. local time (GMT -6). The presentation will be in this virtual classroom. Click the link and join us!
