“Going Green – Education for Sustainability and Elections 2016: An Update and Preview.”
Joannis Kaliampos, Leuphana Universität Lüneburg and Dr. Martina Kohl, U.S. Embassy Berlin
March 3, 2016, 15:00 - 17:00
Going Green: Teaching for Sustainability and U.S. Elections 2016 are intercultural blended-learning projects and the product of a partnership between the U.S. Embassy in Berlin, the U.S. Consulates, the University of Lüneburg, and LIFE e.V. This workshop will explain how the projects work and how teachers and their students can get actively involved.
In a pilot project in 2012, German students explored the U.S. presidential elections through an e-learning platform (Moodle). They adopted a specific state, cast a vote as representatives of that state in a mock election and participated in a student competition. The project received the renowned Eberhard Piepho Prize in 2013.
In a second pilot project in 2014, German students explored approaches to sustainable development collaboratively through an updated and further developed e-learning platform (Moodle). Going Green 2014 received the national “Ausgezeichneter Ort 2015 – Land der Ideen” award for its innovative approach to teaching.
Since then, “Going Green” and “U.S. Elections” have become part of a larger teaching platform “Teach About US.” Schools throughout the country are able to navigate through web 2.0 applications and social media, and exchange their findings on both projects. They publish their local Going Green initiatives and election predictions online and participate in concluding regional student conferences.
Cooperation with the Goethe Institute Washington’s TOP program and other U.S. based partners open venues for school partnerships. The projects are open to all interested teachers and learners; materials can be used online and offline (even if time-frames do not allow for an extensive project participation).
Going Green and U.S. Elections 2016 are in line with the German state-curricula for English in the Sek. II in all Bundesländer.
