I have a partner school/course in the U.S. Can we participate as a team?
Yes, we highly encourage partner schools or courses to participate together as teams. In fact, this is a great way to intensify your partnership and complement your regular exchange programs. Simply let us know that you want to cooperate in the project and we will provide a joint e-classroom with access for both learner groups. The Moodle platform facilitates easy and effective collaboration online.
For Going Green, we also encourage these teams to jointly develop their sustainability action plans and seek possibilities of implementing them on both sides of the Atlantic. In the last two project cycles, we were able to award a special prize to outstanding transatlantic projects and partnerships.
For the U.S. Election Project, existing school partnerships can complement the project participation. The main goal is that German students predict the election outcome in their adopted U.S. state. German students can reach out to their American partners to inquire about their home state, for examply conduct skype interviews on the political culture, voting history, economy etc. in the state. German teachers, please let us know during the registration that you already have a U.S.-based partner so that state can be assigned to your group.
