Educator's Guide to Hosting a Global Health Conference
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

This guide uses biology, health, and world study topics to engage students in global health issues and solutions from experiential and multidisciplinary perspectives. The guide offers an outline of how to organize and host a "Global Health Conference," and provides suggestions regarding logistics and instructions as well as resource materials for preparing and organizing a student conference. The Global Health Conference is a school event where students present display boards and two-page essays on various countries and their health challenges, very much like a science fair.
As a template, the guide can be modified to suit each educator's goals, student needs, and school policies. The guide is designed to involve all students from a single grade level—e.g., all seventh-grade students. However, educators can use pieces from the guide or tailor it to one class or a whole school. We recommend that each educator adapt this guide to the most appropriate scale for his or her own school environment and policies, student needs, and learning outcomes.

Liyla and the Shadows of War
Rating
0.0 stars

Liyla and the Shadows of War is based on actual events and tells a story of a little girl who lives in Gaza during the war in 2014. The minimalist, story-driven platform challenges players to avoid bombs, drones, and other dangers while guiding a family through the hazardous Gaza strip. You must solve puzzles, respond to changes in the environment and make brave, difficult decisions in order to survive.
The game allows players to experience war from the perspective of a civilian and see the devastating effects of war on children. Face your fate with time running against you, your family in danger, and nowhere to hide. The game communicates that when you live in war zone and death is hunting everyone, things will look different and choices become harder; all you can do is get to a safer place.

NationStates
Rating
0.0 stars

NationStates is a free nation simulation game. Build a nation and run it according to your own warped political ideals. Create a Utopian paradise for society’s less fortunate or a totalitarian corporate police state. Care for your people or deliberately oppress them. Join the World Assembly or remain a rogue state. It’s up to you.
NationStates is a free online political game. Players should respect the fun, playful atmosphere of the game, and remain civil when interacting with each other. However, this is politics, and there are more players than moderators, so someone may post content that you find objectionable. By continuing, you agree that you understand this, and that NationStates.net is not a publisher and not responsible for posts by players.
Please also note that the NationStates forums sometimes contain discussions of a mature nature and are not suitable for visitors under 13 years of age.
