At the beginning of the month I got an email from a Dr. Layees in Renaison France who wanted to connect her students with my students in a virtual book club on Edmodo. I was excited for this new opportunity but had no clue how it would go. I accepted her to our library edmodo group and gave her the group code url so her students could also join. Here is her first post to our students.
Next her students started posting and amazing things started to happen! Our students spent their Saturday and Sunday with no prompting from me talking to each other about books and middle school life!
And then I got this which just made my day because this is what technology is all about! We have broken down the classroom walls and made an amazing connection!
Hopefully we will connect soon via google hangout!
