About this session: Learn about the different ways connections can be made to open your classroom up to the world and provide authentic opportunities for learning.

In the 21st century our classrooms are fluid, vivid and exciting places, where we can create, collaborate and communicate with others easily. Technology allows us to connect students to their learning by providing real life experiences.

See how Skype was used to hear stories from around the world during book week or the power of twitter in setting up connections with classrooms for procedural writing.  Look at collaborative blogs, which have ben set up to connect students and develop writing skills. After being inspired by these connections, learn how to use tools such as Twitter, blogs, Google+, Skype and Blackboard Collaborate to access and create these connections.
