Communities can be as small as a family and close friends or as large as the whole world. Children today are inheriting our global world where they can interact and work with people nearly anywhere. In this webinar, learn about the free Greenleaf Program, an online virtual community with students halfway around the world, that will give your students a unique insight into children and culture.

Teaching students and their families how to use mobile devices to access online resources gives them the ability to learn anytime and anywhere. As educators, we know that student achievement increases when parents are involved.
