At the IGC (International Geography Conference) this summer we learned about the MyCOE Global Connections and Exchange Program from our friend and colleague, Niem Huynh from the Association of American Geographers. She was kind enough to send us information on their exciting program for our readers. We hope this helps connect your classroom to others around the globe! 

“AAG is heading up an exciting program, MyCOE Global Connections and Exchange Program, for U.S. teachers and classrooms to connect with teachers and students from countries abroad.

Participating teachers receive $300 for the classroom when they:

  • Sign up for 3 hours of international virtual classroom exchange.
  • Guide your students to submit a collaborative map project.

MyCOE GCE is connecting high school students in the U.S. with their peers abroad. Through virtual online meetings, high school students throughout the world will develop collaborative, youth-led projects that map sustainable development issues.”
