** Update! We now know that Chris Hadfield (@Cmdr_Hadfield) watched our video on the ISS! How exciting for our students. Commander Hadfield understands the importance of connections for learning. His song with Ed Robertson is all about how the world is one place, all interconnected, and the video shows how this is so true. Student teachers, learning from classrooms around the globe, sharing and connecting. Chris Hadfield has made powerful connections with students across Canada and his influence is being felt by an entire generation. Thanks Chris!

And back to the original post:
I am so excited tonight to see the finished collaboration my students were recently involved in.
After spending some time with our student teacher from the University of Regina, ECMP455 students wanted to connect all of the great classrooms they had been learning in around the world with a lipdub project. I sent the idea out and I was thrilled to see two teachers at our school take it on. They did a fabulous job, and we are excited to share the spotlight with “Daniel and the Atkins”, our Saskatchewan pre-service teacher and his beautiful daughters.
A special thanks goes out to Dean Shareski for coordinating the project and including us.
