Want to help kids engage in complex issues?
Calling Kiwi Educators – want to help kids engage in complex issues?
I am excited to announce the launch of this new project UNwebquests.nz on behalf of the United Nations Association of NZ. This is a project I’ve been working on for a while now and it’s finally time to put it out there for Kiwi educators to consider as a great way to supplement their school-based curriculum, particularly if you are wanting to help your learners explore the more global and complex issues of our times.
These issues might include any of these as topics starters: poverty, child rights, human rights, women’s rights, sustainability, water, clean energy, climate change, peace, no nuclear weapons, and so on.
We are now calling for expressions of interest from Kiwi educators to contribute to this important project.
We seek educators who would like to be involved in this special project to raise awareness of the issues that the United Nations champions and develop an exciting resource for Kiwi students, educators and communities to use.
Below is the information to pass on to your staff and networks…
