Teacher Training Workshop: Using Sustainable Development Goals in the Virtual Classroom
The World Affairs Council and Winton Woods High School partnered together during the WAC’s first-ever virtual international education summit to prepare an introductory workshop on incorporating both Sustainable Development Goals and new technology platforms into virtual curriculums. This short, asynchronous tutorial, which can be viewed here, is a brief introduction to the live, in-depth, synchronous training of the WAC and Winton Woods. Attendees of both trainings will be introduced to various technologies as they relate to integrated global education into their classrooms. See event page HERE.The live session will focus on the connection of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to each content area and will highlight various instructional technology strategies and tools to use with students in an in person and/or virtual setting. This session will be in the form of a mini activity which has been developed to allow participants to experience the use of this technology first-hand while delving deeper into resources centered around global education.
Join a Compassionate Conversation on First Fridays
Wanting to continue the popular "Compassionate Conversations" featured at the Cincinnati Festival of Faiths, EquaSion and Bespoken Live are initiating a monthly zoom series of topics that will be framed by our faith. These facilitated one-hour conversations in small groups will tackle the following four-letter words: RISK, HATE, FEAR, BIAS, FREE.
The 5 sessions will lead into the August Festival where we’re hoping to have established a base of people who are comfortable both with this storytelling approach and reaching out to others to join us in this journey towards realizing a beloved community. For those interested, we will meet the first Friday of every month from 9:30-10:30 am. We welcome your participation. CLICK HERE to register online.
