Community Action Education: Students Worldwide Collaborating to Solve 21st and 22nd Century Global Grand Challenges

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

One Planet Education Network® (OPEN) was an early pioneer of the use of “live” videoconference events offering students from around our small planet to take the wheel, collaborate with their peers, and present their own unique cultural viewpoints on how to solve difficult global issues and critically evaluate significant scientific and technological advancements. While teachers guided and mentored, it was the students leading the research and coming up with creative solutions during these project-based international programs.

Now we share lessons and videos from past and recent live cross-cultural engagements.

Founder of OPEN, George Newman, explains how the combination of local and global community action education and related learning games and international student collaborations can help advance our education systems, better align schools to evolving workplace realities, and favorably impact our children’s career preparation and global society.
