Know My World EveryWorld Initative

The September to December Know My World EveryWorld Initiative is accepting applications now for teachers to be eligible to participate in a fully funded virtual exchange experience. 

Teachers selected for this opportunity will work with a Know My World facilitator and a teacher from another part of the world. As a team, they will create an educational experience in which students from two different countries have the opportunity to engage in a fun and informative project. At the end of this experience, teachers will receive a professional development certificate of completion, and tools to continually manage their own digital exchanges in the future.

Teachers will receive:

    • A partner match in another country
    • Customized project planning experience
    • Support in cross-cultural communication
    • Strategies and rubrics for evaluating student work for cultural competency and social emotional development
    • Exposure to educational apps and web platforms
    • Time management strategies
    • Tools for integrating project-based learning into established curricula and learning standards (including the Common Core)
    • A certificate of completion
