Thank you for a wonderful day in Time.
Many schools doing off line activities, many more blogging about all three of our topics this year, Access to Clean Water, Cyber Safety and Digital Citizenship and the Plight of Refugees. Schools connected with one another through a series of Video Conferences where information was shown and shared, information was debated in a House of Commons style and other information was dissected in a Model United Nations. A true E-learning , twinning environment is created by TIME participants each and every year.
In all 80 schools in 30 countries were participating in activities and special events celebrating our 20th Anniversary. Since 1995 when we were launched as a Flagship Project of UNESCO for their ASPNet , This Is Our Time- “TIME PROJECT” has striven to connect students in meaningful ways discussing the major Human Rights, Environmental Sustainability and Social Topics of our time. Each generation of youth is challenged to not only see their role within the world as global citizens but to see each other as neighbours and friends and together to seek solutions to these major issues. Time now sports 3 former student participants as current TIME Educators. We are into our second generation of Time Teachers and hope to be bringing youth of the world together.
For now TIME is not yet done. Time schools are asked to compile their student reflections, pictures, websites and videos in preparation for their final reports. Schools are asked to continue blogging as long as the dialogues are stimulating and challenging. Schools are asked to take on what ever ACTION projects you intended or spoke about in the Video Conferences. Schools participating in the Shrinking competition are asked to get their submissions in and await the results of that competition. Please send your pictures from Time Day for the website and please post your pics to the Time FaceBook site for sharing. If your school was doing the Design a Clock activity please send those into Time HQ.
Time schools are asked to await patiently the final result for Unite the Nations. Coming Monday 16:00 GMT! Please send in your final reports to firstname.lastname@example.org in December or early January.
Thank you for your EXCELLENT and continued work educating our children in issues that truly matter and in ways that inspire and energize.
Yours in Time
Laura Baker Managing Director Time Project and Joe Sheik Curriculum and Projects, Time Project 20th Anniversary!
