This detailed lesson plan and supporting material, written for educators working in schools, youth clubs, community centers, and training institutes, promotes multicultural understanding, creative thinking, and problem solving....

Design Overview
This kit and supporting materials from the website walk educators through the process of facilitating a project-based learning experience around a global issue. The first half of the booklet explains this learning model and the value to young people in the opportunities to create artistic pieces, share them online, and build cultural understanding. The second half details a series of activities that take young people from the early stages of a projectóbrainstorming ideasóto production, to media analysis and finally presentation of their works. Also available for download at no charge, the CD-ROM consists of editing tools, all free and open source software. In addition, the UNESCO YDC website shares supporting materials and resources, such as a Quick time video that introduces the Educator's Kit and tutorials for the software applications.
