In episode 22, Dan and Michael talk with Leigh Cassell about connections-based learning, including global videoconferencing with students.
Books, articles, lessons, and other amazing resources

- “The Digital Human Library (dHL) is a nonprofit organization that connects Canadian teachers and students with hundreds of organizations and experts around the world who are delivering interactive curriculum-based opportunities for learning using technology – for free!”: DigitalHumanLibrary.com
- While dHL is obviously the best one, other services for connecting with other educators we mentioned on the episode include ePals, Skype for Education, Two Way Interactive Connections in Education, (TWICE), and Center for Interactive Learning (CILC).
