• Educator Meet & Greet

    Find a partner classroom in Malaysia to give your students the gift of the world!  

    Overview

    HISD Abroad, AFS Intercultural Programs USA, and AFS-Malaysia are working together to allow educators in our countries a chance to meet one another, learn about  possible activities for a virtual classroom exchange/connection, and learn about some technology tools that can help you with a virtual exchange when there’s such a vast time difference.

    This 1-hour virtual event includes an opportunity to meet educators from across the world in a virtual face-to-face environment. All grade levels and subject areas are encouraged to participate. Teachers will be grouped together by grade and subject to better facilitate a classroom connection.

    Objectives & Scope 

    This event is designed to connect educators in the United States and Malaysia to help build global competence skills and understanding among students. After a classroom connection is established during this Meet & Greet event, HISD Abroad will help bring the educators’ classrooms together to:

    • Explore different views, cultures and ways of life.
    • Make global connections with peers of the same age around the world. 
    • Engage in learning on a topic with students from another culture.
