You’re going to leave this session with a plan for how you will communicate, connect and support your students to set them up for success and take all of the mystery, confusion, and overwhelm out of the equation.

In this session, we’ll look at resources and best practices for bringing the foundations of global awareness, global learning, and digital citizenship into our daily lessons. Highlighted tools will include Google MyMaps, Google Hangouts, and Common Sense Education.
