In 2010, State College Area School District (SCASD) in Pennsylvania, USA, agreed to help develop a virtual international classroom exchange called the Schoolwires Greenleaf program. The program's project-based curriculum paired U.S. students with Chinese learners to collaborate, foster global citizenship, and prepare students for the digital work environment. Schoolwires is a U.S. company that provides web-based collaboration tools, and the Greenleaf program grew out of its focus on tech integration. In this article, the author describes how she piloted Greenleaf with a group of students from her high school social studies class. (Contains 3 online resources.)
