Seventh grade teacher Pernille Ripp nearly quit teaching six years ago, until she realized she could change the way she reached students by understanding their never-ending fascination with technology. By incorporating new communication tools and the cloud into her curriculum, Ripp teaches her students invaluable lessons about the importance of reading, writing – and showing kindness toward others. To learn more about Ripp, visit her blog pernillesripp.com. To learn more about Toronto-based writer Rusul Alrubail, also featured in the video, go to rusulalrubail.com.

What a FANTASTIC teacher! Those are lucky students to have someone that wants to help them see the world beyond the walls of the classroom and the borders of their state. I would love to see more teachers like her in the US.

A wonderful teacher and some very lucky students! We need forward thinking teachers like this and we need those young students to grow up thinking globally. The world is changing and we need to change with it. Thank you so much for sharing this!

How wonderful to bring the world to the classroom. The more we know about other people's experiences, the more we can understand others – and how they're not so very different from us. Well done!
