Lecture «Global Education: How to Connect Your Class to the World»

Описание мероприятия

Rapidly expanding internet access makes it possible for students to connect across countries, socioeconomic backgrounds, and ideologies. Through teacher testimonials, explore how online peer-to-peer learning is changing the way that students understand the world, practice languages, and share perspectives. We’ll review the latest collaborative learning tools, explore data that connects global education to positive learning outcomes, and examine how these experiences broaden perspectives and form the foundation for a more collaborative planet.
