#EdChat #diversityMOOCs

Emotions run high! Twitter chats are among my fav strategies of connected learning, this has been amazing, with a smart and inclusive moderation, engaging indeed!

My Learning Design
The lesson plan very comprehensively addresses the development of student’s intercultural competences. The activities all target different aspects of intercultural competence in an effective way. The activity sounds very engaging and with a powerful result, ensuring students have not only learnt how to communicate effectively but also to understand better the opinions and emotions of their peers. Excellent work! 
Building a class community or reaching out to local community: The presentation of the results of the debating activity at the school assembly will develop the feeling of ownership of the students and support a sense of class identity and community. 
I appreciate very much all your work! Well done!
