What is Microsoft's Global Learning Connections Day?

Microsoft's Global Connections Day (formerly Skypeathon) is a two day event, Tuesday, November 5th - Wednesday, November 6th, promoting the power of making global connection opportunities to connect students and their learning to others outside of their classroom. #MSFTGlobalConnect

At OPS on November 6th we have a number of connections available across our district, but you can make your own connections either day and beyond.
