One Day in our World Global Collaboration Project

'ONE DAY in our World' Flipgrid 
Global Collaboration Week Project

The ONE DAY IN OUR WORLD global collaboration project helps students communicate globally on universal topics. 

It is a starting point in global collaboration for the rest of the school year, with a primary project window launch during Global Collaboration Week.

For Global Collaboration Day, students will host a global collaboration project called One Day in our World. Using Flipgrid as the main means of collaboration (, we host topics easily accessible for multiple grade levels. Since we are hosting, we make sure there are student ambassadors assigned to topics to promote discussion, provide feedback, and encourage participation. Using Twitter as an advertising tool, we invite classrooms around the world to join us. In the past, within the first 24 hours, we had videos posted to our project from kids around the world! Flipgrid shared our work  ( and the connections we made have developed into other collaborations this year, including examining refugee issues and universal access to education.

The One Day in our World Project meets the ISTE Global Collaborator standards:

7a) Students use digital tools to connect with learners from a variety of backgrounds and cultures, engaging with them in ways that broaden mutual understanding and learning. (Our discussion topics appealed to a range of student levels, abilities, and cultures.)

7b) Students use collaborative technologies to work with others, including peers... examine issues and problems from multiple viewpoints. (We used Flipgrid for this project to record video in multiple locations, provide feedback/comments, and examine global issues)

7c) Students contribute constructively to project teams, assuming various roles and responsibilities to work effectively toward a common goal. (We took on hosting roles to ensure everyone had feedback)

7d) Students explore local and global issues and use collaborative technologies to work with others to investigate solutions. (Please see the topics on &

Mission:  The goal of the project is to help students become globally competent by recognizing perspectives, investigating the world, generating intercultural communications, and taking informed action in global issues.
