Meeting K-12 and CC Folks

One of those days when you (okay, I) say, "nothing's better than outreach!"

Had a great opportunity to talk with fifty-five North Carolina K-12 and community college educators, in the brethren-hood of my fellow outreach folks at UNC, Duke, and NC State.  Love to see teachers' expressions when you hand them stuff for the classroom and say there's more if you want it.  And love even more the response when you say, "we'd really like to hear what you'd value most from us."

It'll be a busy summer.  I can't wait to get started!

Teacher Trip to Morocco

Another exciting grant opportunity for June.  This one could take you to Morocco.

"The Teachers for Global Classrooms (TGC) Program provides a professional development opportunity for middle and high school teachers from the United States to participate in a program aimed at globalizing US classrooms.

TGC is a program of the US Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and administered by IREX.

Activities include:

• An online course designed specifically for US teachers aiming to globalize their classrooms;

• Two Global Education Symposiums in Washington, DC (pre and post travel); and

• An international fellowship through a two week country visit upon successful completion of the online course.

Travel under this program will be to one of the following countries: Brazil, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Morocco, or Ukraine."

What can I say?  An online course, pre- and post-travel global education symposium, and, did you see, you get to go to Morocco for two weeks?   

You've got to find out about this.  Read more here.  Deadline is June 15.
