Global Campus check-in: how our students are connecting so far in 2018

Global Campus check-in: how our students are connecting so far in 2018

For World Children’s Day this year, our students used the hashtag #NAEKidsTakeOver to get involved in the Sustainable Development Goals at school. Altogether, this year’s ‘Kids Take Over’ school event has led to a combined ‘Student Voice’ campaign, which truly taps into what World Children’s Day is all about. Many of you are already doing great things in schools to harness and elevate student voices.

Global Campus is also hosting an exciting comic book competition! Not just an exercise in creativity, the competition tasks students with creatively conveying Sustainable Development Goal 4: Quality Education. They are asked to unpack the core issues around Goal 4, choose a problem to focus on and come up with concrete steps to overcome the problem in a creative comic. Comic Book pieces will be judged by the Global Campus team and UNICEF. Winning pieces will be showcased in a digital comic book.

Our Photographers of the Year Competition is also well underway. This competition kicked off in the 2017/2018 academic year and encourages students to post impactful photos on Global Campus. This year’s theme focuses on unpacking Goal 16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions. Final submissions will be judged by a panel of qualified judges, as well as by UNICEF! Finally, a digital calendar will be released to schools in January.

Similarly, our students have begun to get involved in the Global Challenge by engaging in global conversations to explain their views/thoughts on Goals 4 and 16 and ways of taking action in their schools. Have you watched the launch video yet?

Students are also using Global Campus to connect with Deborah Ellis, the award-winning author of “The Breadwinner,” who is engaging students with questions and dialogue on the book. “The Breadwinner” is part of this year’s Global Library selection, including books that our students are reading together and discussing online. 

Another book in the Global Library this year is “Malala’s Magic Pencil.” The book allows students to consider Malala’s life and what she stands for, to consider and develop a greater understanding of Goals 4 and 16, and to develop a class mural depicting those interpretations through the theme of drawing a better world.

Finally, we have also launched this year’s Hack the Tube challenge, a long-standing tradition in our collaboration with MIT. The task for Nord Anglia students is to take a paper towel tube and re-imagine its use to be transformed into something different. We want to see funny, creative or artistic interpretations of what a simple tube can be turned into. The best hacks will be showcased on the Global Campus after the challenge ends. Visit the Hack the Tube page on NAU for more info!
