Global Explorer Prgoram

Explorer Program focuses on language learning & global issues

OCENET’s Global Explorer engages international students and their Canadian peers in a program that promotes intercultural sharing and collaborative thinking centered around the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Topics of global interest and relevance are discussed through cooperative tasks and group learning opportunities in English.

The pandemic had a considerable impact upon the usual programs, but in the 2021 program 13 students from Chengdu, China, participated in one of two groups with the SDG topics ranging from bees (junior division) to cocoa (senior division). There were also 7 Canadian student ambassadors who volunteered to participate in the program. This was held on ClassIn for daily live sessions, Padlet for student work and preparation, and Brightspace for teachers' materials and orientation.
