Have you ever participated in a global project with your students? Why not break down the walls of your classroom and join the Crown Prince of Norway along with educators and students from around the world who are exploring the concept of ‘dignity’. What is dignity? How do we achieve it? How does it relate to character education in the Ontario curriculum and to your school community? This session describes the project in detail and shows you how to have your students create dignity day stories with a variety of easy-to-use digital tools. Begin with an overview of globaldignity.ca and globaldignity.org.
