Everyone is welcome to host a collaborative project or event during Global Collaboration Week!
Global Collaboration Week is Here!
Students, teachers, and organizations will get online to celebrate global collaboration during the week of September 23 - 27, as back-to-school season begins in the northern hemisphere.
During this week, experienced global educators and other professionals will design and host connective projects and events and invite public participation. The primary goals of this whole day event are to demonstrate the power of global connectivity in classrooms, schools, institutions of informal learning and universities around the world, and to introduce others to the tools, resources, projects, and networks that are available to educators today.
This is an opportunity for educators new to globally connected teaching and learning to participate in virtual activities designed by more experienced teachers. It's also a great way for educators running ongoing global projects to find project partners!
