Fabuloso Friday-Global Nomads Group
Submitted by admin on February 20, 2009 - 11:30 am
Every Friday we feature a noteworthy organization or interesting project. I am happy to launch La Buena Life and Fabuloso Fridays by featuring the Global Nomads Group (GNG). The Global Nomads group believe in fostering dialogue and understanding among the world’s youth. Established in 1998, the Global Nomads Group (GNG) is an international NGO that creates interactive educational programs for students about global issues. GNG’s educational programs include (1) four types of videoconferences — The PULSE, Currents, Innovations and Rapid Response — where students learn about and discuss subjects with their peers from around the world in live, facilitated sessions; and (2) videos and learning content on a variety of international issues relevant to teachers and students.
All GNG programs are directly linked to school curricula, education standards and 21st century learning objectives, and are accompanied by lesson plans and training to teachers. Programs are broadcast during the school day and cover a range of topics in the curriculum, including civics, social and global studies, geography, world history, science, economics and politics.
“It’s a simple idea,
but as you’re about
to see, it can have
a profound impact.”
