From School Library Journal-

Global educators are reaping multifaceted benefits from using technology to connect classrooms in far-flung places. Aimed at teachers who are veterans at networking across oceans as well as those trying to take the first step, this volume is full of descriptions and testimonials about student engagement and enriched curricula. Browsing this work feels more like navigating a website than reading a flowing narrative; the pages are filled with boxed quotations, links to more information, and the Twitter handles and blog URLs of noteworthy global educators. Targeting beginners, the first section is glossarylike: vocabulary and concepts are defined. Later on, Lindsay summarizes case studies, which will be germane to novices and seasoned global educators alike, and presents a link to an ebook companion. An annotated bibliography; a who's who of leaders in global education; and a list of organizations, conferences, websites, and blogs will resonate with practitioners and newcomers as they gear up. The content has currency and is high quality, though the book may have a short shelf life because of rapidly changing technology and networking. VERDICT This intricately researched and well-organized offering is a worthy introduction and reference source on global education and is appropriate for school libraries whose global education initiatives have been already launched as well as those who are just jetting started.-Amy Thurow, New Glarus School District, WI
