Global education, projects

Overview.
Digital Community, Digital Citizenship addresses the concept of "global community" as part of digital citizenship. I identify some resources in this area, and invite you to add others.

Invitation to readers: please add your resources to this page. Please add any resources here related to global education, global projects or global thinking, particularly as these topics relate to education and digital citizenship.  Also, feel free to add links to any of the pages you see in the navigation column at the left. When in doubt about where to add something, please add it to the "Other" category and I will sort it out later.

To add to this wiki you need an invitation from me. Although anyone can view this wiki, if you want to add to it you will need an invitation from me to join as a collaborator. Just email me (jasonohler@gmail.com) and I will make it so. Thank you for your contributions.
