Our Mission Statement
At Blue Planet Global Education, it is our mission to coach teachers on using international classroom-to-classroom collaborations to teach core curriculum and global competence.
Our Belief Statement
We believe that authentic connections between classrooms around the globe can change the world. We excel at teaching the tools of creative international collaboration to teachers and students everywhere. Because when students from different cultures learn about each other from each other, their virtual connections foster real understanding, break through harmful stereotypes, and lead to a more peaceful world.
We are so honored to collaborate with Blue Planet. By participating in the various projects, students join with their international peers to turn their creative work into something larger and more meaningful: a collaborative project that crosses borders and celebrates different cultures.
