Building bridges for the future through collaborative projects
1. Why do you think this Keynote is called 'Big Little Classrooms"?
I think it is called Big Little Classrooms because they are small classrooms in small areas doing big things with technology.
2. What are some of the technologies used by students at Hawkesdale to connect and communicate with people around the world?
They use notebook computers and different applications to communicate in real time with people around the world.

I think that this keynote was very insightful to my understanding of how much our world is becoming globalized. The main topic of this keynote was very apparently, globalization. With globalization, classrooms can get experiences from way outside the boundaries of their classroom walls. Just from the Keynote, we can see how many different opportunities globalization presents us with. We can experience what different cultures experience from our very own classrooms.…Continue

Hi everyone! :) I'm Ansley. Today we had our first FCP meeting. (Comment if you were there! We're the school near Snooki, haha.) We had to squeeze two classes into one room so it was a little chaotic, but I thought it was fun. I can't wait to talk to you all again soon! Bye.

Hi, my name is Tori! Three hobbies I like are writing, reading, and playing guitar & piano. I like writing because it allows me to express myself and let go of everything. I've loved reading since I was four years old, some of my favorite books include "The Stand" by Stephen King, "1984" by George Orwell, "A Brave New World" by Aldous Huxley, and "The Catcher in the Rye" by J.D. Salinger. My favorite foods include Italian food (not Olive Garden), Indian food, greek food, and sushi. My…Continue
