Next Steps as we Continue our Collaboration

Please put your school's location on the MY HERO Map. Here is the link:

It is wonderful to be part of such an active, diverse Learning Circle. As our students work on their projects, let's continue our discussions and collaboration on the forum. Towards this end, a new folder has been uploaded on the Teacher Forum: Update on Progress and Continued Discussion. Please use this folder to let us know what you are doing with your students. How is the project going? What kind of projects are your students considering?

Remember, your students final projects will be published using the MY HERO website so it is important to register your students on the MY HERO website if you have not yet done so. Login to your account on the MY HERO website, go to to your profile and you will see the link to create a class code. Here is a video tutorial to help you as you create your class code:

Student projects may be in the form of a story, poem, a piece of artwork, film or music. The MY HERO Project website has many resources for both you and your students to use as they complete their project and it is uploaded on the MY HERO website and shared with other members of our Learning Circle.


Please continue to communicate on the Teacher Forum with each other by sharing what type of heroes your students are choosing. And keep sharing your pictures and videos of your classes as they participate in our Learning Circle in the folders provided in our forum.

There are students beginning to communicate on the iEARN student forum and if possible, we would like to see more classes take advantage of this opportunity. Communicating directly with other students is a great way for them to learn with the world directly.

And as always, if you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact Laura or Madeline. We are here to help you.



A great way to share what our group is doing is through images. Creating a wall with a map, information about the countries in our Learning Circle and photos is a great way for our classes to learn about each other's cultures. The now is a folder for you to share your pictures with the rest of the group. Here is the link:

Another way to share information about our classes and culture with the rest of our learning circle is through videos . Here is the link:
