The My Community, Our Earth: Global Connections and Exchange Program (MyCOE GCE) is connecting high school students in the U.S. with their peers abroad through virtual online meetings. These meetings are arranged through online video conferences, online phone calls and chat sessions using Skype. The purpose of these meetings is to stimulate thinking and collaboration between high school students across international borders around sustainable development themes such as climate change, green economy, food security and hazards and vulnerability, while enriching cultural literacy. We are looking for formal and informal educators in the U.S., at the high school level, who would like to participate with us.
To be eligible for this program you must be an educator at the high school level (high school teachers, 4-H leaders, etc.). Educators must be working with U.S. high school students in the U.S. Educators of any subject are welcome to apply.
How can I participate?
To participate in this program, teachers must apply using the online form. You must include hours that you and your classrooms are available for exchanges. They will contact you once we have scheduled exchanges for you.
What do I get?
For every time that you complete three hours of online exchanges between classrooms, upload a MyCOE project to our online system and submit your evaluation about your experience with the program, you will receive $300. You must let them know how you prefer to receive the $300 (Personal check or Amazon gift card).
