Our goal was to raise enough money to purchase some land adjacent to the school for a play area.
We exceeded this goal enormously. Team Toa in China got their whole school involved and raised a massive $15,000! This brought the total for all the classes to about $20,000. Obviously, this amount of money will make a huge difference to the lives of the Ugandan students and we are currently working with the foundation to plan how the money can best be spent.
Our students got so much out of being involved in this project. The learning that went on through the blog posts and comments was fantastic.
I have used the text tool on this website to highlight just some of the learning that has taken place.
In my opinion, blogging and global projects are all encompassing ways to authentically improve student outcomes academically, socially and as digital citizens. I look forward to being involved in many more with my students in the future!
