Here’s a quick overview of the project:
- Each week, your school will post a video to our project space in Seesaw. The video will be 60-90 seconds long and will address a specific theme. The project only accepts one video per school. If you have additional content you wish to share, there will be weekly Padlet pages where you can do so. (If you don’t know about Seesaw or Padlet, don’t worry! We’ll walk you through it.)
- After four weeks of sharing, we’ll begin writing our global book using the Book Creator app.
- Each week we’ll send emails with instructions and tips. We’ll post the same instructions and information on this blog for easy access.
Find your cohort to see who you’ll be connecting with! Tweet out your excitement on #ifyoulearnedhere! You’ll get to know your cohort schools well over the next several weeks.
This week we will practice using our digital tools and get to know other participating teachers. We’ve created collaborative spaces that are private and just for project teachers. Consider this a “test run” before we go live with students next week -- and a great way to meet your colleagues around the globe! In the future, we’ll post all links and instructions here on the blog. For this Week 0 teacher practice round, however, please check your email for details.
If You Lived Here: Houses of the World
If you haven’t already, please try to get a copy of If You Lived Here: Houses of the World by Giles Laroche. This book will be a shared anchor for our collaborative experience
On Sunday, February 28 and Monday, February 29, please tweet on #ifyoulearnedhere about the project; we can all review those tweets with students during Week 1!
The momentum is building, and we’re officially in countdown mode! We are eagerly anticipating the week of February 29, when we will see the faces and hear the voices from all of your students around the world.
