In a world where "connectedness" is a prevalent theme for future-focused learners and learning, understanding what is happening at a global level becomes important, and making connections with others in other parts of the world an essential part of that. Increasingly, teachers I work with are finding ways of using digital technologies to mediate connections that provide authentic learning opportunities for their students.
Stories have the power to cut through rhetoric, data points, and policies to show what globally connected learning truly looks like – the successes, challenges, and everything else. The map above is curated by Digital Promise Global and links to stories that are submitted by people from around the world. Digital Promise Global launched the Global Story Map to showcase stories from educators, schools, and programs that support global learners. Start exploring stories here.
If you have a story worth sharing then add it to the map.
