Travel to Egypt HC

BySilvia Tolisano

San Jose Episcopal Day School, a private elementary school was willing to create, grow, and embrace a global studies curriculum by committing themselves to a non traditional approach. By physically sending faculty members half way across the world, they are able to learn first hand and alongside their students through the use of technology. The school is transforming their traditional classroom, through blogs, podcasts, photos and videos, blurring the boundaries of space, time and closed walls. Opening these dimensions created opportunities for students and teachers alike to become engaged co-learners. By creating and feeling a direct connection to the content studied, teachers became connectors and learners, students became guides and co-learners, creating a unique collaborative learning experience.
