Global Collaboration Projects-Pernille Ripp

Pernille Ripp has had experience in 4th, and 5th grades. She is currently teaching 7th grade ELA. She is the author of two books, with her third due to be published soon. I had the opportunity to hear her at NCTIES last week. She spoke of her work in global collaboration and the reason she has done this work with her students. Pernille states, "This is about opening the audience, so students' voices can be heard."
She speaks of three paths to choose:
  • pre-existing projects
  • work with peers in your building or through Twitter
  • create your own
Check out her great ideas!
