Full Session Description (as long as you would like): Mr. Carter has not only done extensive research into global collaboration, he also designed an innovative new class centered around instilling Global Citizenship using global-based guiding principles, online collaboration tools and project-based learning. He shares his tips on how best to design a course like this, leading teachers and administrators through the planning and implementation process. His course brings together students from three grade levels (6-8) so is applicable for teachers of any level and can be used as a model to design similar courses.
