Out Of Eden Learn is is an amazingly creative project from Project Zero at Harvard.
It’s done in association with a seven year walking trek by journalist Paul Salopek who is walking 21,000 miles to retrace the history of human migration from Africa. His journey is sponsored by National Geographic.
In the free Out of Eden Learn platform, teachers create virtual classrooms where they can monitor their students progress during a twelve week program (which can be followed, if desired, by another twelve week program — the project is developing ideas for future ways students can continue connecting). During those times, there are what seems to me to be pretty creative learning activities that students do, including interacting with other classes in other geographical locations.
I’ve got to say that whoever created this program has got to have an incredibly creative mind.
