Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

This session  will focus on one of the many free resources available throughTakingITGlobal for Educators (TIGed): thematic classrooms. Thematic classrooms are free online spaces pre-populated with activities and resources designed to support students in learning about, and taking action on, specific global issues and themes. TIGed currently offers the following thematic classrooms:

  • Mental Health is designed to help secondary school students learn and talk openly about mental health, and explores issues and topics including brain functions, stress, stigma, finding support, and mental health in the media.
  • DeforestACTION is designed to raise awareness about deforestation, with a focus on the destruction of native forests for the commercial production of palm oil, and illustrates what youth can do to reclaim at-risk forests and preserve them for future generations.
  • Tread Lightly explores climate change through the lens of ecological footprints, and helps secondary school students to understand basic climate change science, develop a sense of personal and collective responsibility for the earth, and adopt more environmentally friendly habits and behaviours.
  • GRUB asks important questions about the food we eat, where it comes from, how we make food-related decisions, and the local and global impacts of these choices on human and community health.
  • Orange Revolution explores issues related to human rights, good governance and political stability by examining the Ukrainian Orange Revolution in 2004 and 2005.
  • Ayiti: The Cost of Life helps intermediate and secondary school students explore how rural poverty affects individuals, families and communities in developing countries such as Haiti.
  • TIG X-Press: HIV/AIDS provides secondary school students with a participatory educational resource based on social justice, transnational communication, and global solidarity. It focuses on five main areas of HIV vulnerability: gender, migration, stigma, poverty, and access to treatment.
  • Tobacco Control was designed to help reduce the incidence of tobacco use among secondary school students, and supports learning about the health impacts of first- and second-hand smoke, the exploitative nature of the global tobacco industry, and how to effectively encourage peers to lead smoke-free lives.


Thematic classrooms are also often complemented by full teaching guides as well as accompanying games. Join us to learn more about these great resources and the range of web 2.0 tools contained in them, and how to  create your own thematic classroom to engage in global education with your students.
