Co-Presenter Name(s): Hiba Kheirbeik, Yousef AlHayek
Area of the World from Which You Will Present: Syria

Short Session Description (one line): Project Based Learning and 21 century skills are the Syrian students' tools to send their voice to the world, enhance C4 and think RED
Full Session Description (as long as you would like): To be a global citizen, one needs more than thinking skills and academic content knowledge. Actually, cross-culture skills, flexibility, team spirit, tolerance, leadership and self-direction skills are required in today’s life and work environment. The above mentioned skills can not be found in textbooks or be taught among the four wall class.
This proposal is of interest because it shows the Syrian collaborative experience to enhance students’ 21st century skills and how they could make a good use of technology and the media-driven environment to let their voice heard overseas through their project- Case Study
