Think I'm Goin'!

For the coming month, I'll be blogging about my adventures in Nepal and India. First stop: Kathmandu! I'll meet educators from across South Asia gathered for the South Asia International Baccalaureate Schools Association. Host for the meeting is Ullens School, the first IB school in Nepal. I'm eager to hear what 21st century learning means to educators from Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, and elsewhere across the region.
From there, it's off to India for a series of workshops with teachers interested in project-based learning. Stops on the itinerary--so far--include Delhi, Chennai, Chandigarh, Mumbai, Alwar and more.
Updates to follow!

Comics to Cure Bullying

October is Bullying Prevention Month, a good time for projects that prompt students to think critically about what they can do about this issue. The Stand Up: Stop Bullying Comic Challenge offers a way to engage students' creativity along with their problem-solving skills. It's also a chance for teachers to test-drive Bitstrips for Schools, a comic-creation platform. Learn more here.
