CONNECTING STUDENTS TO THE WORLD, ONE CLICK AT A TIME
24 March 2009
I saw this 3-d sculpture/painting on the streets of La Plata, a city an hour from Buenos Aires... It was probably 10 x 30 feet and very powerful. Made me think of the role the flag and the government play in our lives. What do you think?
About World View - Rotary Scholar Global WebFriends
For the past four years, World View has been arranging "e-pal" internet and email connections between Rotary Scholars abroad and North Carolina classes and schools. These electronic connections give students a personal view into life in another world region and culture, increasing global awareness and making the study of a country come alive for students.
Our Scholar at-large is an Ambassadorial Scholar who has agreed to share his or her experiences with all. The Scholar will answer questions and share stories about daily life and work in the country they are living. To ask a Scholar at-large a question send an email to Brianne at World View (email@example.com) Questions, answers, and stories will be updated regularly, so we encourage you to check back often.
What's a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar?
Rotary Ambassadorial Scholars study in a different country, where they serve as unofficial ambassadors of goodwill. They are supported by the Rotary Foundation, which was established to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.
Rotary International is the world's first service club organization. Rotarians provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. There are over 32,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. www.rotary.org
