One Montessori World: Connecting Elementary Students & Teachers from around the Globe

Presenters: Jennifer Williams, Director of Education and Betty Jane Mackay, Lead Montessori Teacher

Listen to the audio recording of the session.

One Montessori World is a global project that incorporates Montessori lessons and project based learning with the use of technology.  Classes are invited to join in fostering global collaboration between Montessori students from around the world.  Over the course of the school year, students meet through use of technology via Skype and other platforms to cover lessons in Geography, Biology, Language and Practical Life.  Throughout the project teachers also collaborate on best practices to create work and improve teaching practices.  At the conclusion of the project, students and teachers come together in a global celebration online to share and reflect.
