As part of MassCUE’s ongoing commitment to fostering global education through technology, we are hosting a Global Education Student Showcase. Submissions should incorporate effective use of technology to:

• Demonstrate how students are engaged in real world problem solving through global collaborative projects

• Examine the role of student interest in civic engagement and social justice topics

• Highlight the role of student voice in global learning

• Address fostering of leadership skills through global service learning

• Document student growth through international travel and exchange programs

• Show teachers and students concrete examples of student-led projects

• Give overviews of tech tool(s), program(s) or organization(s) that support student involvement in global issues through technology

Ideas for presentations:

• Highlight model projects, programs, and organizations that directly involve student

• Identify tips, tools, and resources focusing on student involvement in global opportunities

• Provide diverse cultural perspectives developed through exchange and travel programs and/or global projects (ex. Videoconferencing with a school in the Middle East through “Global Nomads” program)

• Tell the story of global experiences (including student travel) that have impacted students

The format for the Global Ed presentation is as follows:

Each group will have an exhibit table that is approximately 3′ X 6′ but will not have a backboard. You may bring a backboard if you like, but it is not required. Student projects may be displayed on computers that they bring. (Power cords and wireless access is available.) This year all grades 4-12 presenters will give a Global Ed Ignite session. The number of students from each team presenting is up to the individual teacher’s discretion. Presenters will have 2 minutes and 1 slide to share their passions in a continuous rapid-fire presentation! If your students are in grades K-3 this will be optional. View the ignite session from this year’s Student CUEByte Speaker, Sachi Badola, to see an example.

The deadline for submitting a showcase proposal has been extended to May 7, 2018 by midnight. Notification of acceptance will be sent out to the primary contact by June 1st, 2018. Questions, please contact the Global Ed Coordinator, Cathy Collins, at ccollins@masscue.org
