Enter the Global Virtual Classroom website design contest – work in collaboration with two international classes on a project and design a Google site together – register before September 25th


This is a superb web design (using Google Sites) contest to participate in with your class – the Global Virtual Classroom http://goo.gl/u0y1GT . Only three days left to register.

Who may participate?

Teacher guided Primary (Grades 1-7) and Secondary (Grades 8-12, or equivalent) classes and youth groups around the world that have access to the Internet and know or are willing to learn Google Sites are eligible. A  group should have 15-40 students, between 7 and 18 years old as of September. If more than 40 students would like to participate, please apply as two groups and submit separate applications.

Technical skill requirements

The teacher in charge must be familiar with Google Sites and capable of helping students build web pages.

Commitment to the project

Teacher and students must be willing to make a serious commitment to collaborating with their partner schools for the duration of the project. Our emphasis is on teamwork across cultural and geographic distances, which is much harder than working together in the same room or even the same country.
