Grade 4 Collaborates with Schools in Ghana and Zimbabwe
Posted 11/16/2017 02:32PM

The Class of 2026 has been participating in the Level Up Village program called Global Inventors as part of their social studies and design technology classes. In Global Inventors, the girls are learning to harness the power of 3D printing, one of the most innovative technologies of our time, to engineer solutions to real-world issues. In collaboration with their counterparts in Ghana and Zimbabwe, our fourth graders are working to create and 3D print a solar-powered light source using Computer Aided Design (CAD) software.

Ms. Tintle's Class has been partnering with Antoa School in Ghana, while Mrs. Paradis's Class and Ms. Brown's class have been working with the Tynwald Primary School in Zimbabwe.

Check out Ms. Tintle's class as they "meet" their peers in Ghana!

Using Level Up Village's Global Collaboration Platform - an easy-to-use and secure portal - our students have been sharing their findings, learning about each other's lives, and discussing the real-life application of their learning. The result has been a meaningful global collaboration and an enhanced understanding of the world.

For more information, please see the Level Up Village blog for stories about LUV classrooms around the world and their press page.

We are loving this global exchange!
