In today’s highly competitive global “knowledge economy”, all students need new skills for college, careers, and citizenship. This supports most states' adoption of the Common Core Standards. The failure to give all students these new skills leaves today’s youth-and our country-at an alarming competitive disadvantage. As Tony Wagner's The Global Achievement Gap suggests, "Schools haven’t changed; the world has." In this session we will explore how schools are able to use the tools of project-based learning to support our students’ travel as they develop into true Global Citizens. Specifically we will travel the world digitally with a clear lesson plan replication for teachers to use across grade levels.
