Silvia Tolisano: Connect Your Classroom to the World

Silvia Tolisano @langwitches an educator formerly in Florida, now in Brazil,  is a legendary teacher to many of us who collaborate globally because she's been doing it so well for so long. She is one of the educators who has impacted me the most as I've connected my own classroom globally.

Who will want to listen to this show?

If you want to understand the benefits of connecting students globally and how Silvia has done it at her last school in Florida and in her new home in Brazil, you'll want to listen to the show.

My favorite part is when Silvia tells about her favorite collaborative project that she started with a children's poet and how that project continues to grow from year to year even though she's left her first school. The organic life of collaborative relationships in schools is an emerging conversation and you can understand it better with this story. There's a unique curriculum created by collaboration that CANNOT be transported from school to school. This is why schools should look to attract teacherpreneurs who have mastered the art of flattening the classroom.

Hi Vicki. My name is Angela Garrone. I am a student at the University of South Alabama in Mobile, Alabama, and I am taking EDM 310. EDM 310 is a technology based course designed to educate teachers on the importance of using technology in the 21st century classroom and how it is, will, and should be implemented. One component of our class is to visit the blogs of teachers who regularly blog and incorporate technology in their classrooms. Our professor assigns each student 1 teacher per week. This week I was given your name. I will post a summary of my visits on my blog Angela Garrone’s EDM310 Blog on February 10, 2014. Our EDM 310 class has a blog also EDM 310 Class Blog. You can also find me on Twitter @garronegal. I really hope I have done all of this correctly. I guess I will find out in a few seconds.

Oh, I was born in Thomasville, Georgia. I have family in Thomasville, Pelham, Ochlocknee and Camilla. It is a small world!
