The Give Something Back International Foundation (GSBI) has announced the winners of the 2010/2011 Global Virtual Classroom Contest (GVC) — a free online collaborative learning project that fosters creativity, cross cultural understanding, helping others and teaches IT and website design skills amongst students working together from around the world.
Sponsored by GSBI, the GVC program provides an opportunity for primary and secondary school students from different countries to work with and learn from students in other countries, as they collaboratively design a website on a topic of their choosing. Teams are comprised of either three primary or three secondary schools from different countries. A panel of international judges evaluates the final work and determines the winners.
In Third Place of the primary school category is “Education: Hope for the Future” website presented by John Muir School in San Diego, California, USA; Tainan Municipal Haidong Elementary School in Tainan City, Taiwan; and Aga Khan Academy in Mombasa, Kenya.
