Sponsor: Triangle Community Foundation
Project Total: $279,904
This project prepares teachers to adopt technology-enabled strategies for: 1) connecting with other cultures through global collaborative projects, 2) crowd curating cultural media collections, and 3) reflecting on cultural understanding through written and multimodal works. Finnish culture will serve as the focus for this work, with fifteen teachers selected in each of three years for a two-week immersion in Finland with advance and on-site coursework used to frame the experience.
