COE Study Abroad Trips
Diversity in Education, BELIZE
Experience the culture and educational system in Belize. Students are actively engaged with a diverse student population, collaborate with teachers who have become accustomed to teaching with very limited resources, and learn about culturally relevant teaching while experiencing a unique educational system. Exploring Mayan ruins, snorkeling on the barrier reef, touring diverse villages, and immersing yourself in the local culture add a great sense of adventure and enjoyment. This is truly a life changing experience! For more information, contact Dr. Lyndall Muschell, 478-445-1909, firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr. Joanne Previts, 478-445-4487, email@example.com.

2012-2013 Belize brochure
Early every summer a group of students travel to Sweden to live with host families there and teach in local schools. Developing from the Georgia College Sweden Study Abroad program, the Sweden/American iPod Classroom Collaboration Project engages classrooms and students in worldview learning experiences. Students produce audio, picture, and video storytelling clips that can be utilized in these classroom collaborations for a variety of topics such as learning English conversation skills, cultural attributes of the students, and geography features. These podcasts include: clips that express the learning environments in Sweden and here at home, clips that emulate a "day in the life" of a student's living and learning environments, and clips than can be utilized to create a video-based messaging system between the classrooms that discusses and shares understandings from the collaborative curriculum.
