Giving – The Greatest Form of Comunication

on September 16, 2013

I wonder if the use of social media opens our minds and the minds of the children we teach to similarities among people?    I teach children from all over the world and I think that using technology to access videos in a variety of languages and from a variety of cultures helps them to feel like they belong and they are important in my classroom.   As an educator I could use this video to spark the search for additional stories of generosity from a variety of places and in a variety of languages.
