In this workshop we will look at specific examples of how to become globally connected. We will be talking with some education thought leaders via Skype and investigate ways to break down the 4 walls of our classroom to make our classroom more global. We will play a game of Mystery Skype and learn ways to bring experts and other learners into our classroom via the latest online technology.

We will explore Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Instagram, YouTube and Google+ and discuss how these can be utilised as educators to connect and engage in exciting learning opportunities.

Craig will also provide pointers on how to ensure that you develop an appropriate professional profile on social networks. He will also discuss issues around online safety and usage protocols in the event that you plan to use social media with your students.
