>>The Microsoft Global
Learning Connection was a great celebration of the power and potential of connecting classrooms
to open hearts and open minds.>>That allows them to meet different students
around the world and see different classrooms and
really get a perspective of how their life is
different to others.>>We have been to
Holland, Egypt, the UK.>>This call was really fun to do, and I want to do this
experience again.>>Two thousand two hundred
and ninety-eight miles. [MUSIC]>>It was amazing to see the energy, the enthusiasm from educators
and students and the focus on how they’re preparing for not only living
in a changing world, but fueling a changing world with
their talents and innovation.>>This school of interconnection
help us to see more about the potential of AI and how
does it affects the world.>>You can see the colors
and walk through them.>>We are learning
how to program them, we are learning how to build them.>>How important do you think it for kids my age to know [inaudible]?>>My dad always tells me
when he was in school, all he had was a blackboard
and chalk to write on. So I feel more special.>>Not only did students
in classrooms have an opportunity to connect
with one another, they have an opportunity to
participate in Mystery Skype sessions, attend virtual field trips, and explore the world around them.>>[inaudible] some
things then [inaudible].>>It was so amazing to
connect with students and see the wealth of
tools that they’re using. Tools like Skype, Teams, and Flipgrid to connect, collaborate, and share ideas.>>I think is a very great
tool provided by Microsoft, and it’s also very interactive.>>I will like to use Teams to connect with a friend that they’ve
seen England studying English.>>My favorite tool in
Microsoft is Flipgrid.>>It was great to see all the
different ways where students were connecting and collaborating
sharing their cultures.>>[FOREIGN] or stir fried rice or you can call it [inaudible]
Malaysian’s style, [inaudible] all time favorite
food with the Malaysian.>>[FOREIGN] [MUSIC]>>I think that’s a great
thing to have a chance to come into one room of all of us, if you live thousands of kilometers, thousands of miles away to still be able to come
with different cultures, different countries,
different languages, and be able to share opinions. [MUSIC]>>I think it’s important
that students and our students talk
with other countries, so that they get a wider
understanding of the world. They also have a
commonality with people. They understand that they’re
very similar to them. They’re not these aliens
from other countries. They have the same interests, the same concerns, but they can
also learn from each other.>>[inaudible] are very
polite. We say please.>>And thank you.
[MUSIC]>>The journey doesn’t
end here however, schools and classrooms can connect
everyday to expand the borders of their classroom and the opportunities for
learning around the world. We learn once again
that when you connect classrooms to open
hearts and open minds, you can start changing the world.>>Thank you.>>Bye.
>>Goodbye.>>Bye.
