Lara Portelli, inspired by Sugata Mitra’s TED talk, Children can teach themselves, draws upon further research and practice to encourage teachers to bring learning technologies into the classroom.

University of Pennsylvania and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) are jointly launching a free massive open online course on social norms and social change. The complete course, which consists of one theoretical and one practical part á 4 weeks coursework, is taught entirely in English. Students who already attended previous sessions of the course rated the first part of the course with 4.5 and the second part of the course with 5.0 out of 5.0 possible points.
Please share the video as well as our organization widely with your immigrant and educational communities. We worked hard to open the Global LEX center and we are proud of the services we offer to the community. Also, we are always looking for volunteers and interns to lend a hand. Our next event is on 5/19 at 5:30. We will have a lecture about Columbia, a Columbian art exhibit, and Columbian food and coffee. Please consider joining us.
