Virtual Exchange: Connecting Chicago and Casablanca
Increasingly, teachers are connecting with colleagues around the world to engage their students in online, collaborative learning. In this session, a virtual exchange practitioner will discuss how three high schools in Chicago connected with three high schools in Morocco to build a digital science exhibit for what will eventually become an online, global museum called the STEAMuseum. They will discuss how they designed and implemented the exchange, student outcomes, and offer lessons learned.
