Three thrilling things on the theme of EDUCATION today.

01 Thrilled to announce a new addition to the Out My Window Universe: a set of education tools for teachers, specifically aimed at the 14-17 age set. It’s called Inside OUT MY WINDOW – Global Education Lab.  Our colleagues in the NFB education department have done an awesome job pulling this together (that’s you: Kathy Sperberg, Tey Cottingham  with HIGHRISE researcher extra-ordinaire Maria-Saroja Ponnambalam, along with HIGHRISE’s house band designers, Helios.) This is how the team describes it:

Inside OUT MY WINDOW – Global Education Lab
We’re thrilled to launch our newly developed educational space entitled Inside Out My Window – Global Education Lab. It’s an educational extension to the NFB’s  interactive project. Out My Window: Views From the Global Highrise is an award-winning immersive exploration of vertical living. It’s all about the people living in highrises and the global issues they face. IOMW targets high school students aged 14–17 and is a great tool for educators interested in creatively integrating global education into their lessons. Have your students explore Out My Window first, and then continue their learning experience through Inside OUT MY WINDOW’s four interactive screens about the project’s 13 featured cities. Download the Educator’s guide for ideas on how to go deeper into issues of urbanization and global suburbanisms.

02 Thrilled to announce our nomination for a BAKA FORUM Award 2011. Because of the amazing educational tools described above, Out My Window has been nominated for a prestigious award in Switzerland for the Cross-Media in School and Youth Education Category.

03 Thrilled to discover a high school in Korea has not waited for the education guide to come out, as they have already created an elaborate, fantastic class project inspired by Out My Window! Check out this OUT OUR WINDOWS, a thoughtful group blog from a whole class as they discover the stories of Out My Window. What a great teacher Mr.Garrioch must be.
