This paper will describe how preservice teachers, inservice teachers and teacher educators inquired into the complex topics surrounding teaching about cultural diversity and teaching in cultural diverse classrooms. An international online collaborative project was used as the vehicle to share literature, multiple perspectives and pedagogical approaches related to diversity in today’s classrooms. Outcomes of the project show that the pre-service teachers gained a rich understanding of the issues and a range of pedagogical practices which can be used in their classrooms. This online project can be easily adapted and used with students in schools to give them the lived experience of being online collaborators who can develop global relationships for the purpose of increasing their understanding of cultural diversity.
