How Skype is connecting UK grannies with children thousands of miles away in India.
Arlis Groves's insight:

"The grannies, or e-mediators as they are officially known, are not teachers and the sessions they conduct with the children in India are not lessons.

Instead they read stories to the children and talk about things relevant to them and to the UK. The point, said Prof Mitra, was that they provided encouragement and praise and became a "virtual granny" to the children."

27 Ways To Be A 21st Century Teacher

27 Ways To Be A 21st Century Teacher | Globalizing Your Classroom | Scoop.it

"

You can’t swing an iPad in the hallway without hitting someone talking about becoming a 21st century teacher, 21st century student, or something involving the 21st century. While I personally am quite over that term, it fits and makes sense. I guess. (Personally, I think a better term is ‘modern’ teacher or ‘connected’ teacher rather than just stating that someone exists within this century. Kinda vague, no?)

So what does it take to become a 21st century teacher? Quite simply, it’s a little more than integrating the computer lab into the classroom. In fact, classrooms should look nothing like a computer lab that we’ve come to know and instead should resemble a set of grouped students collaborating, learning with each other, and having a ‘guide on the side’ teacher who helps steer the proverbial ship.

Think you got the chops to become a 21st century teacher, a modern teacher, or at least an educator who has a classroom of engaged students? Use this handy chart to find more than two dozen ways to become the teacher you’ve always known you could be. Most of the ways are briefly explained but that’s kinda the beauty of the whole chart. You can take the sentence or two and turn it into a new teaching process that others may not already use. For example, the term ‘collaborate’ (see below) could mean just about anything to a modern teacher. Collaborate via Skype? Collaborate to try out Project-Based Learning? Collaborate to grow your PLN? The sky is the limit! In fact, these days we talk about space so much that the sky is not the limit.

Have I gotten you excited enough to start taking your own great leap into the world of modern education? I hope so. Shoot for the moon, you might hit a star. If not, use this infographic-y visual as a guide to becoming a modern teacher. If you are already one, pass this along to your friends and colleagues to make sure they’re becoming one too.

What ways would you add to this visual? Want a print-friendly PDF? Click here. Also, check out the great blog by Mia MacMeekin who made this chart!"

ShaoLan: Learn to read Chinese ... with ease! | Video on TED.com

For foreigners, learning to speak Chinese is a hard task. But learning to read the beautiful, often complex characters of the Chinese written language may be less difficult.
Arlis Groves's insight:

It may actually be possible for me to attain a very small measure of literacy in the Chinese language using Shaolan Hsueh's system.  She has a regular newsletter and a Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/ShaoLanChineasy?ref=tn_tnmn as well.  My interest in learning the language increased one hundred fold after I learned that I would be spending a month in China this summer.  Believe me, if I can grasp the meanings of some of the characters, you certainly can.

Teachers interested in globalizing their classrooms often have the travel bug as well.  What better way to learn about the world than to visit a variety of culturally different global destinations!  If that describes you, be sure you attend to the minutia of paperwork before you go.  Being delayed or denied entry to a country because you do not carry the proper paperwork can be frustrating.
