Hello All,

I am Linda from New York. Our high school is involved in a year-long SDG project with a school in Norway. When the Norwegian students visited us in September, we learned that we would have difficulty collaborating with them because our school district will not allow our students to share or receive information from individuals or groups outside of our school district network (due to Child Internet Protection Act.)  Has your district found a way around this?

Thank you.

Global education, besides what Jack Strelec has brilliantly commented; I think GE should also promote Outer &

Outer wealth and Inner wealth

Outer wealth is money,status, standard, power and many more such egoistic violence which meaninglessly inflate our ego and attitude to life.Inner wealth is our consciousness and mind which are real jewels of  fulfilling life. We need to  give every day ourselves a bit of of a reason to to generate inner wealth to make us and our society perfect and peaceful.This is what is needed today if we really  need a TRUE SHIFT to accelerate the next evolution.It is time to understand the  and consciousness so that the current conflicts and violence in every sector of human activity end which will enable us to live to earn rather than earn to live and problems of excess and greed are solved.

Inner wealth.

My project is called FACE IT-TRACE IT-ERASE IT. In this project students get to pick from a list of 15 of the most important issues facing the world today. These issues were selected from the United Nations, Relief International, and several other NGO's. 

   Once the students have selected their topic they will be grouped with four other students from around the world that have selected that topic. These students will begin to contact each other using the NING sites or whatever sites they prefer, and they will choose the roles for each team members. I have a list of the roles.

FACE IT: Once the teams are created and the roles are determined, each member from each group will write a paragraph describing and defining their Issue. The team’s members will share their paragraphs with each member. The team will make corrections on the paragraphs, and then submit 5 paragraphs to the project coordinator (me for now). The project coordinator will present a grade to the team. Each of the three phases of this project will be graded with the same weight. The final grade will be an average of all three phases.

TRACE IT: In phase 2 of this project the team will begin its research into the issue (topic). The team will present one research project representing the work of all members. The team leader will make sure that all members are participating. The project must be pre-approved by the project coordinator. It can be any multi-media presentation as long as it utilizes technology. The team Checker will make sure that everyone is working on the project and sending in their work. Teams will gather data on their issue using Microsoft or Open Office files. Graphs, charts, statistics will be required to give evidence that all team members have achieved a proficient level of understanding of their issue. They will do this by using any technologies available to gather supportive data. When done, the team will present the project to the coordinator for a grade.

ERASE IT: The final phase of the project can be a video presentation done by each member of the group. Erase it means that the group needs to collectively create a video presentation or a product of their choosing to discuss a solution to the Issue the group has been working on. If a member of the group does not have access to digital video equipment that member must give their information to the team leader who will assign a member to speak for them. The team will pass the video files to each other over the Internet. The team Presenter will compile the video clips into a single, 10 minute video that will be made available on www.gceafghanistan.ning.com. If a video is not possible the individual, or the group, can present a solution in any appropriate manner. Our project offers a vast array of products that are acceptable.
