BALANCE OF THE PLANET K-12: Online challenge-based learning for teams

Full Session Description (as long as you would like):  

Balance of the Planet is a project from Curtin University that connects learners from around the globe and invites them to learn valuable skills, compete for scholarship funds and prizes, and gain university-endorsed recognition by solving real-world problems associated with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Built on the new Global Challenge platform developed at Curtin University.  Global Challenge is an online learning platform that enables students to participate and complete a series of specific individual or collaborative team based learning exercises (referred to as Challenges). In individual challenges, students navigate through a number of interactive activities designed to engage and educate simultaneously. In collaborative challenges, students form teams in order to complete project based tasks, and maintain communication through the integration of Cisco’s WebEx Teams.
