Join me on Thursday evening as I talk with Sharon Peters and Noble Kelly about "Education Beyond Borders."
Sharon Peters (M.A. Ed. Tech.) is the director of technology at Hebrew Academy in Montreal, Canada. In ’08 and '09, she led teams who facilitated professional dev. workshops with the non-profit NGO Education Beyond Borders (formerly Teachers Without Borders Canada) to educators in South Africa and rural Kenya. Her students have participated in award-winning collaborative projects with other classes around the world.
Education Beyond Borders is a non-profit NGO devoted to closing the education divide through teacher professional development and community education. We are focused on advancing and supporting the movement for educators and advocates for education to do our part in supporting our colleagues and their students in disadvantaged regions here at home and around the world.
