10 Jan

Coming back online after a sinusitis start to the new year… lots of thoughts I’m eager the share about the culture of online gaming, acceptable¬†(insert air quotes)¬†levels of intolerance and women in coaching, but for today, just a quick post about an opportunity for teachers through the US State Department’s Teachers for Global Classrooms (TGC) Program, which “provides a professional development opportunity for middle and high school teachers from the United States to participate in a program aimed at globalizing teaching and learning in their classrooms.” For more, read here: http://www.irex.org/project/teachers-global-classrooms-program-tgc. Applications are due March 4th. Please forward to teachers you know who might be interested!
