Global Nomads Group (GNG) 2014-205 programs combine technology and standards-based curricula to connect middle school and high school students and educators from two or more countries through a project-based curriculum, social networks, interactive videoconferencing and/or webcasts to build cultural awareness and global citizenship. Participation is free but applications are competitive. Criteria include commitment to implementing the program from the class and school; and a clear vision for integrating the GNG program within existing curricular offerings.¬†
