Session Materials – Worldview Conference

On October 20, 2016, I’ll be presenting a session on purpose-driven learning to a group of educators who are passionate about global education at the annual Worldview Symposium on Using Innovation and Technology to Drive Global Learning. ¬†Specifically, I’m planning to emphasize the role that Kiva Lending can play in developing globally aware students.

Here are the materials that I will use during the course of the session:

Session Slides

Session Handouts – A collection of materials that can be used to support classroom microlending projects.

SMS Kiva Club Blog – ¬†A digital home for the reflection that Bill’s students are doing as they make Kiva loans.

Poverty’s Real Video – A video that Bill’s students put together early on in their Kiva work to convince local businesses to support their work.

We Kiva Because We Care Video – A second video that Bill’s students put together to explain the reasons that they are invested in Kiva lending.

Participants might also be interested in checking out Creating Purpose Driven Learning Experiences — a short book that Bill wrote recently that goes into greater detail about the role that purpose can play in delivering the required curriculum.
