Today’s Learner’s are tomorrow’s leaders
Imagine how lively lessons would be if pupils and teachers regularly went online to discuss, explore and research issues such as the rainforest with pupils in Bolivia or the impact of globalisation or HIV/AIDS with pupils in Ghana and Surinam. The real world as context for learning in your classroom; the Global Teenager Project offers a rich and powerful learning environment that enables your students to practice 21st century skills in online Learning Circles.
The Global Teenager Project (GTP)
The Global Teenager Project, initiated by IICD in The Hague, Netherlands, has already turned this vision into an everyday reality for thousands of students across five continents. Since it was first launched in 1999, the GTP has grown from 3 classes to over 250. The result is a rapidly expanding virtual network of schools in both the developing and developed world and an upcoming generation of information-literate, knowledge-oriented, culturally-aware global citizens. GTP, offers basic, thematic and special Learning Circles to elementary, secondary and vocational classes including special needs education.
With ten years of experience, GTP currently includes 32 participating countries and offers collaborative global learning to over 10.000 students per year in the following six languages: Dutch, German, French, English, Spanish and Arabic. GTP learning circles are offered twice a year starting in September and February, while thematic learning circles are organized through-out the year.
Management of Global Teenager Project
As of September 1999, the Global Teenager Project is being managed by Rescue Mission Ghana, located in Accra - Ghana. The GTP project management team are Mr. Ebenezer Malcolm, Mrs. Emefa Ansah, Alhassan Omar and Richard Malcalm all dedicated to create innovative and meaningful learning.
