ENGAGING CLASSROOMS AROUND THE WORLD IN 3-WEEK, LIVE, VIRTUAL EXCHANGES.
GLOBALIZE YOUR TEACHING
Online learning modules teach you new skills that prepare you for programs. With each new badge, you open up new possibilities for global collaboration.
Global Education Strategy Badge sessions prepare teachers to use our collaboration platform and to understand how to teach alongside an international partner. Topics will include global collaboration theory, what it means to “learn globally, act locally,” co-planning and cross-cultural teaming, time management in a partnership setting, and best practices in managing synchronous and asynchronous collaboration.
Country Badge sessions prepare participants to collaborate with partners in other countries. Cultural differences and similarities, political systems, approaches to education, and many other factors will influence each collaboration, so having a base of understanding about a partner country will make collaboration more productive and meaningful.
Global Issue badge sessions give teachers the tools and knowledge needed to understand and teach about specific global issues. Each of our 3-week collaborations centers around a global issue such as Eliminating Global Poverty and Hunger or Developing Clean Energies. World Class will help teachers build their fundamental understanding of each global issue and will provide classroom materials and activities to support student learning.
