Global education projects or initiatives in which you are involved (if applicable):

The Global Classroom Project in Fairfax County Public Schools, Virginia (USA) was created as a way to provide opportunities for students to collaborate with peers from around the world on authentic tasks and challenges through a variety of learning experiences. Students will also develop the knowledge, skills and behaviors to be able to engage in collective action towards issues on the local, national, and global level.
