Full Session Description (as long as you would like): On September 25th 2015, 25 countries adopted a set of 17 sustainable development goals (#SDG) to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all.
Santa Cruz School Students in Kerala, India connect with classrooms abroad, collaborate and co-learn curricula based lessons. In keeping with #SDG 11, #SDG 13 and #SDG 15, students at both ends of the connection, plant trees commemorating the connected learning, honoring teachers at both ends #TeachersMatter
Santa Cruz students will connect with your school on Skype, Google Hangout, Blackboard Collaborate, Zoom or any Video Conferencing software and show your students how to make garden pots using waste paper.
Coonnected learning is recorded and uploaded at our schools channel. Tree Twinning: Learners at both ends contribute to nature, ecology, learn lessons in Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and strive towards UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
The idea can be extended to plant saplings all over the world honoring past teachers, successful alumni of schools, dignitaries whom someone wants to respect. As members of Hello Little World Skypers, we have started planting trees honoring our PLN.Let us all green this world.
Greening benefits all of us. Let us achieve the Sustainable Development Goals of protecting our planet.
