Global Collaborative Projects
There are a growing number of online global collaborations that allow learners to explore real life social and environmental topics within a community. Learners can connect to community members such as scientists, authors, etc. or to other classrooms within the same city or across the globe. These projects may allow learners to collaborate on a specific topic, problem solve, explore multiple perspectives, and much more. Happy collaborating! *My Favs.
Before exploring, check out the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The World's Largest Lesson is a great place to begin considering how to use them in education.
Mr. Flory's 4th grade class blog is an example of a class that Skypes with other classes and blogs.
