Arts Every Day is excited to host the upcoming workshop, “Building Global Citizens Through Project Based Learning” from 4:30-6 on October 27th at the Motor House. See below for more information about the workshop from our facilitator, Elisabeth Gambino!
Building Global Citizens Through Project Based Learning
If you are interested in travel and field research for yourself or your students, cross cultural education and international collaborations, you will benefit from attending this workshop! I will be leading participants through the philosophy and core actions of global education, including connecting to others, developing cross-cultural communication skills, and taking action to solve problems on the local and global level. During this workshop I will review opportunities for teachers including TGC, Fulbright-Hays, and more, as well as platforms for collaboration scuh as iearn. A representative from AFS will be present to answer questions about federally sponsored scholarships and travel opportunities for high school students such as YES and NSLI-Y. Participants will leave the workshop with the tools and resources needed to develop project-based learning and global citizenship initiatives in their own classrooms, and platform for sharing their projects with peers.
Visiting Dutch artist Kathie DiStefano, from our sister city of Rotterdam, will be co-facilitating to discuss the upcoming global collaborative “Eco-News Art Project.” Tying in with her work with Avalanche Arts for over a decade, she will lead students in planning, writing, filming and producing an environmentally themed video news show.
