We want to build learners who see the real world as something they can make a difference in. We want to build learners who see the problems of the world, and they want to solve them. We want to build global learners! Thankfully, my friends at Participate are making it easy for World Water Day! They have created a free course that helps students explore the need for free, equitable access to water. Give it a try.
Participate is a learning company that does a ton to build global learners both at the teacher and student level. They have a wealth of resources structured in collections, chats, and courses. They also work to bring international teachers to the US to teach. All of that makes them the perfect company to put together courses on world topics like World Water Day!
The World Water Day course includes a wealth of resources, lesson plans, and it even includes access to experts throughout the world. You can find almost everything you need for students to get a deeper understanding of the issue and letting them find how they can help. It all is there to make it easy for the teacher to implement that real-world connection, and you can seal it all with a digital badge!
