UPDATE: This trip, but not the contract, got canceled at the last minute. The English for STEM course we’re developing is virtual now, and going great! I’m working for World Learning on a USAID program, in partnership with the Egyptian Ministry of Education, (MOE).
The umbrella project is called The Education Consortium for the Advancement of STEM in Egypt or (ECASE).
This contract is to assist in a small part of the much larger project. I’ll be collaborating with World Learning, the STEM school teachers, and the MOE to design and create three MOOC-type online courses in Schoology.com for 10th and 11th graders, and help train content developers.
