Mentors and Mentees,
The success of the Global Learner project and Mentor Program is going to depend greatly on Virtual Mentoring. The questions of the day is What Makes a Great Virtual Mentor?
Please share your thoughts, tips and ideas on virtual mentoring. Have you been a virtual mentor or the recipient of virtual mentoring in the past? What has worked well? What challenges did you need to work through?
One thought - Mentors (and mentees) can share a small technology or lesson idea as a closure to e-mails (when appropriate). For example, yesterday my students loved taking pictures of their work. Later I will use their photographs to upload a classroom book to VoiceThread. Later this week we'll finish the book on the SmartBoard for the class to see.
I look forward to reading more ideas and thoughts on What Make a Great Virtual Mentor!
