Classrooms defy walls in the 2st century. Students can develop, work with, and share their learning with others around the world. Knowledge is power, yes. Knowing which tools to use and how to use them, courteously, for varied collaborative purposes is even more powerful!

This course surveys several methods for connecting, communicating, and collaborating across the room or across the globe. You'll see how schools and teachers are putting the three "Cs" into action to prepare kids for college and career.

Explore Google applications like Hangouts, Events, and more, Voxer, and Storybird, which all address collaboration and communication for different contexts. You'll develop your own skills and in turn, be equipped to help your kids make the most of our extensive connectedness.

You can use an AOK option provided to create classroom-ready material. And your micro-badge shows you can facilitate effective communication skills among today's students using today's tools.
