This July 6th and 7th we will be co-facilitating a two day workshop “WorldVuze: Global Education in an Inquiry Based Classroom” with Garfield Gini-Newman from the Critical Thinking Consortium at the Summer Symposium in Toronto, Canada held at the Bishop Strachan School.
During this workshop, learn how to provide authentic, engaging and deep global learning for your students across the curriculum. Explore the possibilities of using WorldVuze to bring diverse student perspectives to your discussions about core curriculum such as science and social studies as well as complex challenges such as climate change, urban planning, clean water and urbanization.
You will have an opportunity to work with the renowned educator, Dr. Garfield Gini- Newman (Senior Lecturer at OISE/University of Toronto and National Senior Consultant at TC2) to learn and practice relevant pedagogical approaches from the Critical Thinking Consortium. These scaffolds enhance critical, creative and collaborative thinking for all students. BSS educator Amanda Humphreys brings her many years of experience with project work to WorldVuze and will highlight examples of ways you can successfully integrate this platform in a variety of grades. As well, WorldVuze founders, Julia Coburn and Ellen Palmer, will navigate you through the powerful uses of this platform.
