Abstract

GlobalEd 2 focuses on developing a multidisciplinary model for middle school science instruction that places the educational process within an Internet-based, simulated, international decision-making environment in a social studies classroom. GlobalEd 2 situates students in the roles of global decision-makers in the critical science issues of fresh water and global climate change, requiring student-decision-makers to understand both the scientific concepts, and the policy implications and the constraints that confront real-world scientists and government leaders. This presentation will report results demonstrating the impact of participation in GlobalEd 2 on student outcomes in science, technology and writing.
