Broadening Student Perspectives and Learning as Global Collaborators at John C. Fremont High School
By Michelle Touceda, Instructional Technology Facilitator, John C. Fremont High School, Fremont Community of Schools, Local District South
Global collaboration can take shape in many forms. Through the use of this strategy our students have the opportunity to actively build on their prior knowledge and deepen their understanding of a variety of concepts. Providing students with guest speakers, the chance to attend virtual lectures, and sharing their thoughts with other students both inside their classroom as well as outside of their school site allows students to grow and develop skills that may not be available to them without the use of technology – specifically the use of video conferencing.
