Since I joined Twitter a few months ago, I have quickly seen the value in connecting with educators from around the world. I would like my students to have some of the same opportunities. The Global Read Aloud Project seems to me like a great vehicle for these connections. Beginning with a common framework of the same book, many classes of students will have the opportunity to interact with other students. Whether the interactions are discussion groups through chat or Skype, reading each other’s blogs, or any other option, the chance to learn and interact with other people outside our local community is highly valuable to me. I hope that you’ll consider joining this project and learning with right along with the over one hundred people who have already signed up.
