Teaching in a Global Landscape - Mindful Multiculturalism in Today's Classroom was the timely theme of the recent Twitter Chat hosted by The Global Search for Education (@CMRubinWorld) and Edmodo (@edmodo). Featured guests Dr. William Gaudelli (Department Chair and Associate Professor, Teachers College, Columbia University), Jessica Kehayes (Executive Director, Education, Asia Society), and Dana Mortenson (Co-Founder and Executive Director, World Savvy) were interviewed by CMRubinWorld about this timely global topic.
