We at Cohort 21 are proud to announce that this summer Worldvuze in partnership with The Bishop Strachan School hosting a summer symposium . We first learned about Worldvuze two years ago when the  Julia Coburn (Founder) presented at our Third face to face session at MaRS. We fell in love with the tool and had her return this year to update us on the evolution of the tool. WorldVuze is a platform that cultivates international awareness, empathy and 21st century disposition in a unique and truly global interconnected way. If you have not had chance to check them out listen to what some student users have to say and then visit their site –

Official announcement:

This July 6th and 7th we will be co-facilitating a two day workshop “WorldVuze: Global Education in an Inquiry Based Classroom” with Garfield Gini-Newman from the Critical Thinking Consortium at the Summer Symposium in Toronto, Canada held at the Bishop Strachan School.

During this workshop, learn how to provide authentic, engaging and deep global learning for your students across the curriculum. Explore the possibilities of using WorldVuze to bring diverse student perspectives to your discussions about core curriculum such as science and social studies as well as complex challenges such as climate change, urban planning, clean water and urbanization.

You will have an opportunity to work with the renowned educator, Dr. Garfield Gini- Newman (Senior Lecturer at OISE/University of Toronto and National Senior Consultant atTC2) to learn and practice relevant pedagogical approaches from the Critical Thinking Consortium. These scaffolds enhance critical, creative and collaborative thinking for all students.  BSS educator Amanda Humphreys brings her many years of experience with project work to WorldVuze and will highlight examples of ways you can successfully integrate this platform in a variety of grades. As well, WorldVuze founders, Julia Coburn and Ellen Palmer, will navigate you through the powerful uses of this platform.
