In an international project, funded by FIPSE and CAPES, two US universities and two Brazilian universities have re-envisioned the way future teachers may embrace multiculturalism. Of the many developments in education, two of the most vital forces are those of emerging educational technologies and the presence of multiple cultures, nationalities, races, and ethnicities in the classroom. In an effort to leverage educational technologies, partners have built shared courses, and methods of communication. The first set of exchanges will be completed in the spring of 2005 and preparations will be in motion for launching new courses with a number of students and faculty traveling abroad and connecting online for new ways of understanding each others' worlds. The goal is to prepare pre-service teachers for the use of online technologies in the classroom which can open new opportunities for fostering relationships and inquiry among students and teachers around the world.
