“I see more teachers trying to connect with others from all over the world. Knocking down the walls of the classroom can be a very powerful thing to do. Connecting students with the world can only help them in the long run.” – Nick Provenzano, USA | daily edventures:
“Teaching can be a lonely profession in some schools,” says Nick Provenzano. “You teach all day in your classroom and enjoy brief encounters with colleagues in the teachers lounge or passing quickly in the hallway. There isn’t a lot of time to have a meaningful conversation about education and learning.” But rather than just accepting this fate, Provenzano decided to do something about it. In addition to blogging on his multiple award-winning blog, The Nerdy Teacher, Provenzano created and co-edits Project PLN. “Project PLN has found great success in allowing teachers from all over the world to share their thoughts on important educational topics,” says Provenzano.
