Global SchoolNet partners with Google Education to support global collaboration!


Global Warming Student Speakout!

Google partnered with Global SchoolNet to invite teachers and students to use Google Docs & Spreadsheets collaborative software in a project to brainstorm strategies for combating global warming. Children of all ages from more than 80 schools around the world participated. In November 2006 we took out a full-page ad in USA Today to put their ideas in the spotlight. The project is now complete.

Benefits of Participation: Participating in this project gave students, schools and youth organizations:

  • a quick and simple assignment to help students learn more about global warming.
  • an authentic activity that will engage students in 21st century learning.
  • an opportunity to try free and easy online collaboration tools provided by Google.
  • a voice that will be heard by elected officials and U.S. lawmakers on a critical issue - global warming.
