Rapidly expanding internet access, especially in the developing world, makes it possible for students to connect from across countries, socioeconomic backgrounds, and ideologies. Through first-person accounts from teachers around the world, we’ll explore how online peer-to-peer learning is changing the way that students understand the world, practice languages, and share perspectives.
