Global Awareness Activities

#GlobalSpeedChat is a worldwide collaboration platform on which students respond to activity prompts, such as “If the world had a flag of its own, what would it look like?” “How do you greet friends and family in your country or culture?” and “If you could sit on a bench and chat for one hour with anyone, who would that person be?” The website presents an activity each month throughout the school year for teachers, students, clubs, and classrooms worldwide to complete at their leisure, depending on their schedule and time zone. Students simply complete the task and then check back to the activity Padlets to see what others are posting from around the globe. The #GlobalSpeedChat activities are intended to help youth around the world realize that they have much in common with others who live across the globe.
