Greetings High School Social Studies Educators!
We invite you to submit student work and voices as part of North Carolina’s celebration of International Education Week - November 16-20, 2020.
International Education Week (IEW) is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. International Education Week offers the chance to expand awareness of and interest in global education, and to gain a new cultural understanding by sampling a small part of life beyond the shores of America. A variety of IEW activities are being planned by NCDPI to promote International Education Week in North Carolina.
The NC IEW Student Showcase provides students an opportunity to share their interest and understanding of global issues, global learning, and cultural awareness through various projects, presentations, or work samples. The COVID-19 Pandemic is giving us an opportunity to rethink and redesign education and NCDPI wants to acknowledge all the ways our NC students and educators are studying global education in the digital age. Our student showcase will be completely virtual.
Below are links to three different Flipgrid boards for educators to submit student samples in the following categories (video tutorial):
If your Public School Unit does not allow for the use of Flipgrid, you can submit an example for the showcase by using the free audio tool Vocaroo to record a student narration of work or interview about Global Education. Complete this Google Form to submit an alternative submission.
Submissions are due on Monday, November 9th!
Thank you for considering this opportunity!
