Earlier this week, the Partnership for 21st Century Learning (P21) joined the Stevens Initiative to present a webinar that explores the use of project based learning (PBL) as a pedagogy that supports and enhances virtual exchanges. The webinar was led by P21 CEO David Ross and Kimm Murfitt, the IB Coordinator for Harold E. Winkler Middle School in Concord, North Carolina. Watch a recording of the session above.
Kimm and David encouraged educators to take one step at a time, even if it is a small step, to start introducing technology to the global studies classroom. See the box on the right for links to several resources Kimm and David recommend for more information on project based learning, virtual exchange, and action-oriented or service learning projects.
