TVO Kids is jam packed with goodies your students will enjoy. Every time I go there I find something new. I just discovered the "Book Club" where students are able to add their own reviews. Pretty neat. This is a great site that is fun to explore. It's current, fresh and did I say fun? Lots of interactives, videos, games, and things for kids to create. Two huge thumbs up for TVO Kids!
Reach the World’s mission is to help elementary and secondary school students and teachers to develop the knowledge, attitudes, values and thinking skills needed for responsible citizenship in a complex, culturally diverse and rapidly changing world. Through its interactive website,RTWenriches the curriculum by connecting classrooms to volunteer world travelers who are studying or exploring around the globe. RTW identifies and trains volunteer travelers, manages web-based journalistic content posted weekly by these travelers, and delivers training and support to the schools in its programs. Most of RTW’s travelers are college students on study abroad programs around the world, while others are independent explorers.
Reach the World provides two levels of service. For sites located in New York City, the RTW Full Program includes traveler:classroom matching, video conferencing, on-site support from classroom interns, and teacher professional development. For sites located outside of New York City, the RTW Online Program includes traveler:classroom matching and video conferencing.
Reach the World’s website also hostsGeoGames, a set of interactive games that teach core geographic literacy. GeoGames is based on a multi-year geography research study by RTW and researchers at Teachers College, Columbia University.
