At the MassCUE (Massachusetts Computer Using Educators) Annual Tech Conference in October 2016, students demonstrated how they are engaged in real-world problem solving through global collaborative projects. Their projects incorporate technology to address civic-engagement and social-justice issues and highlight the role of student voice in global learning.
