Ginger connects with a teacher in Australia via Skype and then tells us her impressions. She confesses and exposes some cultural gaffes and breifly hits upon the value of these connections for students. More 'casts will be coming about making connections and the skills afforded to students growing into citizens of the world. Hopefully, you'll be hearing about this from students themselves!

I truly am excited to connect with her (and her students)!
