1. Develop goals for why and what you want to connect about. What interactions do you want create and develop to accomplish meaningful connections?
2. Find, contact, and build relationships with educators who are already globally connected.

- Twitter/Google Hangouts/Skype: Your twitter feed has many hidden gems. Here's the story of how one of my Twitter followers hooked me up for the Skype of a lifetime:
"Over the weekend, I had the most awesome opportunity come up. A Twitter contact (@ksivick) helped connect me with Michael League, an explorer, researcher, teacher at the McMurdo Station in Antarctica! He works with an organization called PolarTREC which stands for teachers and researchers exploring and collaborating. Mr. League is currently in Antarctica, but will be returning this Friday. We don't have much time to prepare, but we are busily get ready for this exciting event! My class is thrilled we could sqeeze in this excellent learning opportunity."
|PolarTREC is a science research company that partners with educators.|
