That’s the number of unique visitors my students and their blog has had since they started letting the world in 3 years ago. From discussing field trips with students in Egypt, explaining Thanksgiving to students in London, England, to sharing book recommendations with students in Singapore, my students personify what we mean when we say we want to create global citizens.
With the addition of this iPad they can continue on their quest to bring the world into to our little learning universe while further exploring the world. They often take these connections for granted, which means I have done my job. Global connections are no longer the exception to the rule, but the rule under which they live. I am grateful that I get to be a part of their global collaboration every day.
