- TIP OF THE HAT - [icon name="fa-group"] awarded to Lulu Chen [icon name="fa-slideshare"] STANDARD 2: design and develop digital age learning experiences and assessments
It is week 3 at Kaohsiung American School and Lulu Chen comes out of the starting blocks at full speed. She hits it BIG out of the park with the return of her Mystery Hangout sessions. Lulu takes to heart the school’s mission to make Global Citizens out of her grade 4 students.
In a Mystery Hangout, students engage in a video conference call with another classroom around the globe without knowing their location. Through a series of questions on the model of the game 10-questions, students investigate to determine where the other class is. Their geographic and communication skills are tested in real time in this very exciting challenge.
It is worth noting that these skills are also recognized in the KAS technology standard #7: Students Are Global Communicators (inspired by the 2016 ISTE Students Standards):
Students use digital tools to broaden their perspectives and enrich their learning by collaborating with others and working effectively in teams locally and globally.
Congratulations to the grade four students. We look forward to many more international collaborations.
