How cool.

It’s 10:30 pm and I just had an online chat with my friend Katie.  And it’s 8:00 am where she is.

Katie and I were colleagues in Burke Co and she and her husband moved to India this summer.  She is an Instructional Technology Specialist in an International Middle School there.

I’m not world traveler.  I’ve been to England once, but other than that, I’ve stayed put here in the good ol USA.  Maybe that reason adds to the cool factor of being able to keep in touch with her via instant messaging.  But, even if you’ve traveled the globe, I think you’ll most likely agree with me that the internet is amazing.  We have tools that enable us to communicate, collaborate, and connect with others around the world.

Even better, we have tools to help our students connect with others around the world.

How cool is that?
