This week, from March 5-7, students from all over the world will be participating in the World Education Games. This three-day event is hosted at worldeducationgames.com, where students will compete in math, science and literacy. To learn more about the World Education Games, visit blog.worldeducationgames.com. These games are a great example of how the Internet is changing the way we learn and interact with other students. It has become easier than ever to reach across the globe and find email penpals in Australia or have a video conference with a classroom in China.
Education is changing for adults, too. The MIT OpenCourseWare website, ocw.mit.edu, provides free access to course materials from more than 2,000 different MIT courses. Other websites such as Coursera, coursera.org, and Open Culture, openculture.com, offer free courses and online resources from many different universities. Students and self-learners from anywhere in the world can take these courses online at their own pace. With sites like these, we can all have a truly world-class education!
