#ccGlobal Connected Classrooms

#ccGlobal: Connected Classrooms is the concept of #ccGlobal, which started back in June 2011 when teachers from Virginia, USA and Sydney, Australia wanted to create a network of connected schools where students from different countries could work on similar projects. The concept has evolved to include a matrix of connections between schools in Virginia and Sydney and which has now spread to include schools in Ireland and the UK.

 

#ccGlobal Connected Classrooms is the concept of #ccGlobal, which started back in June 2011 when Pam Moran (Virginia, USA) contacted Liam Dunphy (Sydney, Australia) to see if their schools could connect in a similar way to a successful earlier connection between Liam’s school with an Elementary School in Iowa, USA. The concept evolved to have a matrix of connections between schools in VA and Sydney, which has now spread to include schools in Ireland and the UK. There is a Ning social network which now contains the official membership and information about projects. Invitations to join can be found at this location:

There are now over 40 official members from all over the world from countries such as Australia, Egypt, Finland, Guatemala, Ireland, Jordan, Scotland, England and the USA .

Here are some of the projects (described in ccGlobal.Ning.com)

Please follow the link to see the description posted about each project:

These projects have been added as small groups within the #ccGlobal group project using Edmodo. You can join this group using the group code: ov6j9x and add any students that you would like to have collaborating with other students in the #ccGlobal network.
