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
- an authentic activity that will engage students in 21st century
- an opportunity to try free and easy online collaboration tools provided
- a voice that will be heard by elected officials and U.S. lawmakers on a
critical issue - global warming.
