This is my favorite Web resource for global learning: TakingITGlobal
The Executive Director of the TakingITGlobal organization, Jennifer Corriero has said: “I wonder…if young people were actively engaged in all aspects of society, and thought of themselves as community leaders, problem-solvers, role models, mentors, and ‘key’ stakeholders…how would the world change?” Somewhat dumbfounded by the brilliance and beauty… Continue

Excuse multiple crossposts -
Julene Reed and I are teaching a workshop at NECC on global
collaboration, and I've set up a series of resources to demonstrate
during this class. I hope that these resources will live on as people
become interested in sharing resources used to teach global awareness
concepts. Please consider jumping in and joining any of these groups.
Some of them are already seeded with material, but others are just
getting started. Feel… Continue

Many people in this online community is likely preparing to go to NECC. My supervisor and some colleagues have planed to go.
What sense is it in the conference? I am hesitate that...
Could someone tell me?
And whether someone were willing to launch a international project on the ICT-related?

It is fascinating how little change one can make in the lives of students! Despite over a month of exploring the Greenhouse Effect through experiments, creating animations, designing posters, participating in Earth Hour activities, watching 'An Inconvenient Truth', reading the EPA website, discussion and personal affirmations, the class can still leave the windows and doors open with the lights and airconditioner going when they leave the room.
What can we do to move this learning… Continue

I will have free math workbooks based on car prices to help motivate pre-Algebra students. They are about 100 pages and there are no advertisements in them. If you are…

I have just invited a bunch of very talented teachers from our school who have been chosen to explore possibilities around International citizenship and Global Awareness. There are at least two people from each of our three schools (Snr, Middle, Jnr) I have asked that they explain who they are and what they would like to explore in this area.
I would very much appreciate your respones to their thoughts. In the end we are looking to develop ongoing relationships… Continue

I was just pointed to the fact that a special moment is coming up:
After 12:34:56 on 7.8.90 was during summer break, this is a great opportunity for an interesting class - especially on a global perspective:
- This particular moment happens 24 times.
- Who gets to celebrate it first?
- The Old European: "The American jumps the gun by about a month, celebrating on 06.05.07 rather than 05.06.07."
- The… Continue

Thanks for the invite. Yesterday I felt very global - I went to Phoenix and came home in one day.
I spoke to a group of really nice people about 2.0 tools and the teaching that goes along with it - and how students can be involved in making that happen.
When I got home, my husband asked if I wanted to get a later dinner, and I said, "Sure, but something light, I had shrimp in Phoenix."
The sort of thing a globe-trotter says!

At the National Educational Computing Conference to be held in Atlanta, Georgia this June, fellow ADE Julene Reed and I will be hosting a workshop on global collaboration. I plan on utilizing a variety of tools and resources throughout this hands-on class, including Ning, a service that allows one to establish a custom social networking site.
I've made a few prior attempts at creating an online meeting space for those interested in global collaboration which included the establishment… Continue

What is development?
Until recently, development was conceived narrowly as no more than an increase in Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of a country. Such a narrow and limited understanding of development is totally misleading and obscures more than it illuminates. As we are all probably aware, most African economies have been experiencing steady economic growth over the last five to ten years without corresponding social development. Take the case of Nigeria; as at 1999, the… Continue
