Educators! Take Your Class on a Sea Voyage!

The Beautiful Nation Project website is a powerful learning platform designed to revolutionize the way we teach, and learn.

Imagine if your text books could talk to you, and the news answered back! This website is built on a social network, which links its members and the content they share geographically. This allows for real-time global reporting, global conversations, global discussions, and global investigations across borders between classrooms and students!  

To help educators bring the world into the classroom, the network tracks the global sea expeditions of the Makulu crew. The Makulu crew are world explorers, using today's communication tools to stay connected with students while traveling the planet by sea. The crew use the art of storytelling to create interactive lessons to meet the needs of educators working with different literacy levels and learning styles in one classroom. 


The network also houses resources for educators and students. Articles, photos and videos produced by the Voyage of Makulu crew, along side real-time communication tools, maps, games and activities, offer ways for students to engage with the crew and each other in real-time, about real global issues. 

Articles are filtered into subject-specific sections of the network, called Channels. By subscribing to a specific Channel, your classroom can engage in online discussions and videocalls with the crew and each other about content posted in the Channel. 


Your classroom also has the opportunity to personalize its profile in the website. Member profiles allow your students to share information about their community, conduct global science data collection and participate in a virtual science fair with other classrooms in the network from around the world!
