Kid World Citizen - Activities that help young minds go global. Flipgrid - Global Connections. Let's Be #GridPals □□□ And then it led to #GridPals. We were hanging out on Twitter one evening and chatting with a bunch of you all. Around 5:30 our good friend Bonnie McClelland tweeted at us. She was super excited about her students' engagement with their Flipgrid penpal classroom and wanted to know what hashtag she should use when tweeting about it. She suggested #GridPals... and the rest is history!

The hashtag went viral and Bonnie stepped up to help lead this global movement. She created the world's nicest form, and to date over 750 educators have signed up to connect their class with students around the world. All educators can participate in GridPals on both Flipgrid One (free) and Flipgrid Classroom ($65 / year).

Putting an “in” in front of the #tlchat hashtag we’ve been using forever, changes everything. It’s sticky. It’s (of course) international. And it’s already gaining global traction. Teacher librarians are the ultimate connectors and I don’t believe we have yet realized our true global powers. Never before have we had truly effective tools for synchronous conferencing and media-rich asynchronous group discussion. Members of our library community have been trying to launch a hashtag for bridging school librarians and schools across the world for years.

The new #inTLchat hashtag should help us build community, amplify our learning, find partners and share projects! How did this get started?
