Teachers selected for this opportunity will work with a Know My World facilitator and a teacher from another part of the world. As a team, they will create an educational experience in which students from two different countries have the opportunity to engage in a fun and informative project. At the end of this experience, teachers will receive a professional development certificate of completion, and the tools to continually manage their own digital exchanges in the future.
Teachers will receive:
- A partner match in another country
- Customized project planning experience
- Support in cross-cultural communication
- Strategies and rubrics for evaluating student work for cultural competency and social emotional development
- Exposure to educational apps and web platforms
- Time management strategies
- Tools for integrating project-based learning into established curricula and learning standards (including the Common Core)
- A certificate of completion

Interested teachers/schools should visit our “How to Participate” page and submit a short application to Know My World in order to be eligible for the scholarship, which will cover the entire cost of the digital exchange experience!
