One Globe Kids offers an innovative way to engage students in diversity with the help of technology.
Through real stories and activities young children can travel the world and meet friends from the comfort of their classroom or living room. All they need is a phone, tablet or computer.
Travel by iPad, iPhone, computer and/or smart-board?
