Global Student Laboratory (GlobalLab, for short) is a web-based, educational platform that enables students, teachers, and learners of all ages to pose questions and together find answers. With GlobalLab, teachers have, in one place, all the resources, tools, partners, and support to bring authentic investigations to classrooms and homes. Each project is a collaborative journey of challenges and discovery. In nine projects, step by step, students use math, graphing, and more to discover who they are as a community. They can start by clicking on the first project, “Where on Earth Are We?” GlobalLab is social media and crowdsourcing for learning.
