Welcome to CONNECT for teachers
This space is for educators who are bringing global issues to life in grade 9 to 12 classrooms and in extracurricular activities. Here you’ll find the tools and ideas to help inspire and activate a new generation of global citizens.
Announcing: the CONNECT:ED Blog
Do you have a global education experience to share? It could be a poetry slam, international career fair, dramatic presentation, awareness campaign, field trip or debate. If you’re engaging students with innovative resources, creative learning and out-of-the-box thinking, we want to hear from you!
We’re looking for stories, photos and videos of what you’re doing with your students. You can profile a student leader or school event, share a learning activity or resource, or tell us about an inspirational teaching moment. Your story could be featured in a new World Vision youth leadership resource coming this fall. Post often! Deadline for submission is June 1, 2012.
Read our first blog about a student-run World Issues Conference and start sharing your own CONNECT:ED stories.
