This presentation deals with the use of free international CMS resources to address the UNESCO training goals for teachers through a process of peer-mediated instruction. A four year BECTA study completed in 2007 concluded that a process of personalized learning would be best for meeting personal training goals for teachers. A pilot of this peer supported process using teachers in the United States and Panama has shown that there are significant gains to be had by teachers on both side of the peer mentoring process and that the CMS system can serve as an effective learning bridge over vast distances. This roundtable will present the findings of the pilot study in this area and offer participants resources to conduct similar cross national boundaries mentoring projects.
