UNICEF Canada has added its Climate Change, Children and Youth: Local Connections to Global Issues Guide to the COOL 2.0 Education Database. "COOL 2.0 is taking our Guide to a whole new level," says Paula Gallo, Senior Manager of UNICEF's Global Classroom Project. "In the COOL 2.0 Teacher Space, teachers can tailor our learning assignments to their classes. They can embed videos in assignments and have students work collaboratively to complete assignments using social media. The level of interactivity COOL 2.0 offers really reaches young people."
If you search climate change on the growing COOL 2.0 Education Database, you will find 212 teaching resources - created by GreenLearning Canada, UNICEF Canada, other partner ENGOs, and teachers:
- 89 lessons and activities
- 85 videos
- 36 research and data entries
- 2 collaborative projects.
COOL 2.0 teachers have given UNICEF Canada's Climate Change, Children and Youth Guide the highest ranking, with five of five stars. UNICEF Canada created Climate Change, Children and Youth to support secondary school educators in their efforts to work with youth to take action on climate change. Through a series of thought-provoking activities, students nurture their compassion and discover how climate change affects children around the world, especially in developing countries. The Guide explores the scientific facts of climate change while working to provide students with a sense of hope about the future and the knowledge that they can create positive change.
