BYOL-TakingITGlobal (TIG) operates the world's most popular online community of young leaders. TIG members inspire each other to make a difference, learn about issues that matter, and find out how to constructively channel their energy and ideas. With a growing membership of close to 300,000 individuals in over 200 countries, www.tigweb.org has reached 10 million youth since its launch in 2000. As TIG's vibrant global community has evolved, educators have sought to integrate its resources and focus on action-based learning into their teaching. This was made easier in 2006, with the launch of the TakingITGlobal for Educators (TIGed) program. TIGed comprises a community of educators interested in empowering their students to think and act as world citizens, a collection of resources that facilitate the inclusion of global perspectives in the classroom, and a virtual classroom that allows students to use technology to learn with and about peers the world over. Depending on the amount of time available for this session, it could range from a simple introduction to the platform to a hands-on workshop in which participants create and build their own online classroom communities.
