URL to project/event starting point:
This past year, students from around the world came together to collaborate on world issues affecting their communities, taking the concept of global learning and turning it into a reality. In GlobalCOlab (GCL), students teaching students from around the world, has connected students and educators from different cultures and religions from around the world to cross-cut disciplines, curricula, and traditional subjects to empower participants through student-led and student-created topics. These topics are based around global issues affecting each student’s community. GCL Co-Founder, Brian Jones will discuss through a Q & A format both GlobalCOlab, and how to successfully set up an asynchronous global collaboration in your classroom.
Project/event directions for participation:
This would be a Q & A format with the following objectives: Learning crosscuts all subject matter and can only be fully realized through connecting students to real world experiences and people. GCL not only provides the conceptual shift in education, but re-imagines the classroom into a border-less and subjectless world the user creates. The goal is to stress the process of learning in order to provide students the preparation needed to enter tomorrow’s workforce.
