It has been an intensely exciting period. Our Writers' Club "true believers" welcomed Shanghai Community International School to the fold. Here is one of our girls comically trying to show where Darwin is located on a map of Australia.
Aside from giving students a global audience, exposing them to more, better and different writing from students their own age, and the opportunity to give and…Continue

Here's a quick video I put together on how to put a Revolver Map (a map that shows where your visitors come from) on a blog. While the video is designed for use on the Writers' Club, it will work with any Wordpress blog. I find it exciting to check out my Revolver map to see how visited my sites are... I think students should share in that excitement.…Continue

"Yes, but is it important to the kids?" asked my wife, when I showed her the latest map of where schools are located that participate in the Writers' Club. The answer is yes... and no.
I currently look over two communities where the participants are students from schools in different countries - The Writers' Club and…Continue

Find yourself in Limon, Nicaragua, where the ocean spray blows amidst a rural community that texts to friends on the oxen ride home and watches Rihanna videos on a dirt floor.
For three weeks, embrace the challenge of connecting local to global and back again – learning and sharing 21st century skills from community organizing to phonics to blogging. Go home with the wisdom that comes from true immersion and action, after working alongside local kids, teens, and…

En estos momentos, es más fácil y práctico hacer un vídeo que una composición. Lo planteábamos en A Jugar. Prohibido estudiar, y que ahora quiero reforzar con el Vídeojuego. Gee, afirma que los juegos no son solamente una fuente de entretenimiento, sino también un modelo a…Continue

The one thing I detest is isolation. If I don’t get a chance to talk, discuss, even argue ideas, then I feel like my creativity has been shackled.
I’m very grateful at the moment that I’ve had a chance to exchange ideas with another global educator, Toni, in Shanghai. Connecting students around the world can be a lonely business, with interested educators scattered far and wide. The connective tissue that is the…Continue

¿Mi escuela, es del siglo 21 o del siglo 18?
Si maestro y estudiantes permanecen encadenados a la fisicidad de la escuela (soportes tangibles, biblioteca física, sala de clase, pizarras (PDI), escritorio, pupitres, impresoras, proyector, tabletas, PCs…), estaremos más cerca de la “escuela del siglo 18 computadorizada” que de la cacareada “Escuela para el siglo 21”.
