Abstract

The GlobalEd 2 Project utilizes educational technologies available in middle school classrooms to build a PBL environment embedded in social studies classrooms as an expanded curricular application aimed at increasing instructional time devoted to science and persuasive writing in a virtual environment. Over 400 students from two different states in urban and suburban locations participate in a 5-week web-based simulation focused on negotiating international agreements on water resources. Data is collected on pre- and post-testing on writing skills, and self-efficacy related to science, writing, social studies and technology.
