Collaboration in the Global Classroom without Walls
Travelling Tales is an online program in which students from schools all over the world collaborate to create stories. Students are sorted by age and assigned an issue on topics that vary—from environmental to social issues. Once assigned a topic or part of a story, students have 48 hours to work with their classmates to add to the story, complete with drawings and voiceovers, which teachers then upload to Adobe Spark. On the Travelling Tales Media page, students can take a look at the latest Travelling Tales made by classrooms around the world.
The Global OnenessProject has created an Empathy Collection of 15 stories and lessonplans to foster empathy in the classroom. Through the multimedia stories, students meet individuals from different backgrounds and visit communities in different geographic locations facing challenging global issues.
New York Times Student Journeys offers educational travel programs for middle school and high school students. The programs focus on destinations The Times has covered, where students can benefit from an insider’s view as they explore themes and topics associated with The Times coverage of local issues.
