Global Virtual Classroom -- A while ago, I mentioned a project I was getting involved in. It's the Global Virtual Classroom project of Give Something Back International. It's a program that is aimed at providing opportunities for cross-border, cross-cultural collaboration and communication between primary and secondary school students. The cornerstone of the initial launch is a website design contest in which teams of three schools from three different countries will work on web projects from October through February. In another month or so, we'll be launching the second piece of the project, a Clubhouse that will allow for similar projects, but without the restrictions or structure of a contest.
We are particularly interested in drumming up participation from outside the US (we expect plenty from these shores, and need at least twice as many non-US schools to form the contest teams without duplication of country in a team). So I am calling upon my international readers to please consider passing information about the Global Virtual Classroom to teachers and schools in your part of the world.
And fellow bloggers...since we're trying to get the word out widely, a link would be appreciated. It would be very cool to see the Global Virtual Classroom make it into Technorati's top stories.
