About this session: Learning does not have to stay within the four walls of the classroom. Teachers can easily take learning beyond the classroom walls and amplify student voice. In this webinar, Heidi Trude will share how teachers can easily use tools like Flipgrid, Padlet, and G-Suite for Education to make global connections in their classrooms. She will explain how she uses each of these tools in her classroom and how her students are now connecting and collaborating with their partner school in France.
