Published on

Take your classroom outside of the school building walls! This workshop will lead you to online resources and collaboration tools for participation in multiple communities of global educators. Using Web 2.0 and global collaboration practices, connect your students to classrooms from around the world in cultural exchange and ambassadorship. Organizations such as Taking it Global, Journey North, Flat Classrooms, and many others offer exciting opportunities for your students to use 21st C Skills to learn international cooperation and collaboration as well as environmental & social/cultural appreciation. Use school-safe email such as ePal and volunteers from Peacecorps to connect with international pals or join on-going international projects. You may even be ready to learn to create your own international projects and find resources to help you along the way.

Each student is assigned a parcel of land, and through the use of satellite imagery, identify and mark changes in land patterns over a period of time, reporting disturbances, collaborating with neighbors who hold the land around their hexagon to explore whether or not the disturbance is related to illegal activity.
