Meet Mrs. Abernethy…fifth grade teacher in Greenville, Pennsylvania. This year’s class has adopted the name, “Mrs. Abernethy’s Global Gorillas.”
When the students came up with this name, I’m not sure they understood the significance or the secret glee their teacher felt. This class is very global indeed in that our website and our wikispace have been visited by thousands of people from hundreds of countries. With a tracking feed on the site, the students are amazed to realize that someone from China or Spain or Africa has just been on our site. They think they are famous! I’m not sure about famous, but they definitely have global presence.
Below you can watch a video I made in my last class “Digital Storytelling” that tells a little bit more about me and my students.
