Global Collaborations are opportunities to experience learning beyond our classroom and school district. They are a group of students, classes, and/or schools working together who are usually not located in the same school, city, state, region, and/or country.
Global collaboration projects allow students to work with peers across state and national boundaries. They can also teach valuable skills like digital citizenship, communication and collaboration, and research and information fluency.
Over the last couple of years, Cleveland students have made connections with students in classrooms nationally and internationally. Below are highlights of the students and the schools:
Handcross Park School, United Kingdom
Handcross Park School is a private prep school in West Sussex, England. The school which is located on 500 acres, was founded in 1887 and has a student body of approximately 325 boys and girls from the ages of 2 to 13. Cleveland has formed a collaborative connection with their Tech Integration Specialist and has been able to schedule Google Hangouts with two of our classes so far, both in December 2016.
The time zone in the United Kingdom is 5 hours ahead of US Eastern Time - so our window of opportunities is only between 9:00 am - 10:30 am.
