If you want your students to be global citizens, then you might want to make them familiar with TakingITGlobal. “TakingITGlobal.org is an online community that connects youth to find inspiration, access information, get involved, and take action in their local and global communities. It is now the world’s most popular online community for young people interested in making a difference, with hundreds of thousands of unique visitors each month.”
There is now a teacher’s classroom version where you can create a class section where your class can collaborate with other students from around the world.
Let’s take it global so our students are 21st century students and not locked into the walls of the classroom.
