2013-2014 Web Contest Registration Opens

2012-13 Secondary Team from St Marks, Meera Bagh, New Delhi
The Global Virtual Classroom Web Contest registration opens today.  Your school could be on a winning team.  Three schools are teamed by GVC into a single team.  That team works together to create a website about a world issue that they have chosen collaboratively. This is a full year commitment which involves knowing how to create a website. Schools also need strong collaboration skills, as the 3 schools in each team are separated geographically, but need to work together as one.

Why register early?  You'll be able to request partners, so it helps if you get to know other schools!
