A Great Tool For Planning Global & Collaborative Project-Based Learning -

STEAM, English Language Arts, and Social Studies are among the core-curricular skills students practice within the larger context of cultural investigations on topics such as what it’s like to grow up in Turkey or Cambodia, the causes and effects of poverty globally, and how recipes from Spain, Russia, Holland and the American South reflect regional beliefs and customs.

 

ePals Experiences are designed to inspire, challenge and empower kids by opening their minds to new understandings and points of view,” says  Cricket Media CEO, Katya Andresen. “When they collaborate on language learning or other activities with peers in places like Thailand or Argentina, these personal connections foster the global awareness and empathy called for in the 21st century.”

Comment: Why Japanese kids can walk to school alone

Comment: Why Japanese kids can walk to school alone | GLOBAL GLEANINGS: Culling Content on Global Education, Diversity, Sustainability, and Service. | Scoop.it
It’s a common sight on Japanese mass transit: Children troop through train cars, singly or in small groups, looking for seats. They wear knee socks, polished patent-leather shoes, and plaid jumpers, with wide-brimmed hats fastened under the chin and train passes pinned to their backpacks. The kids are as young as 6 or 7, on their way to and from school, and there is nary a guardian in sight.

JoAnn Salvisberg-Smith's curator insight, December 15, 2015 1:47 AM

Interesting point about the integration of other languages and cultures into the global dialog (or is it the lack thereof?).

Web 2.0 for ELT's curator insight, December 15, 2015 11:41 PM

This should be a warning to be taken rather seriously: 

"The lack of language diversity on the web, according to some activists, is aiding in making lesser known languages obsolete.

These languages, markers of culture and identity, are a way to construct a collective sense of belonging, providing a direct connection to history. When languages die, a part of culture dies — and preservation of culture is an important global goal."
