My name is Kaitlyn Clements and I am an intern at D.C. Public School's central office with the Global Education Department.
Currently, we are seeking to build partnerships with schools around the world to participate in a virtual exchange program in order to give the students in our district the unique opportunity to be world-thinkers and engage in an increasingly global community. We believe that global education contributes to the student’s overall learning as well as helping them to be inquisitive, informed and active world citizens. The virtual exchange program will help us with this goal. This program gives teachers in our district the opportunity to connect with international schools as to develop a global curriculum including but not limited to: global content, cultural exchange, and international collaboration. We would like to make it possible for classrooms and teachers both in D.C. and abroad to connect and work together to plan and initiate exchanges that would provide an invaluable educational experience.
Please feel free to take a look at our website and the programing we offer: https://dcpsglobaled.org/. If your school is interested in connecting with U.S classrooms through live virtual exchange or video exchange where time zone differences are a concern, please fill out the survey using this URL: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeOVTI8g78WLM8EbC5nObT05GQ... .
