As you may know, 10 STAR Discovery Educators and their students had the opportunity to experience amazing trips this summer to Australia, South Africa and China through the Discovery Student Adventures program. As some of you may know, this summer I was very ill, and my silver lining was following the Discovery China Adventure. With the gift of time, along with Karen Wells, we read and commented on all the teachers’ and student’s blogs. What I found was an incredible depth of global digital citizenship as these young students created an excellent new permanent record. As we all know, nothing beats discovering the undiscovered on a Discovery Student Adventure trip, as Karen Wells, Heather Sullivan and the STAR Discovery teachers on these trips will share with you when you attend yet another first, as they bring the adventure into your classrooms. I’ll be there–will you?
Bring your students next month for a series of three special webinars where we’ll learn from our STARs and their students about the countries and the adventures through the Five Themes of Geography. You’ll also learn how you can experience the trip of a lifetime in 2010!
