  • KristinaStoney Welcome!

    September 1st, 2012 by Kristina Stoney

    Welcome to Ride To Learnan online space where you can follow the cycling expedition - World x Cycle - with students around the world, meet the explorers, and use our activities base to support your learning about the people and places we visit along the way.

    First register (takes 5 minutes) at: 

    http://worldbycycle.tiged.org/ridetolearn/register/ 

    Passcode: WBC/RideToLearn(include capitals and !)

    ♦♦♦

    Introduce yourself via our discussion board, meet other youth who are changing the world and collaborate on projects with them!

    Kristina and Nic with World x Cycle are, like you, on a learning adventure! They're curious about the stories behind everyday things. They're going to be visiting communities of farmers, manufacturers, and designers to find out more about where and how our T-shirts, shoes, and bikes are made.

    But they need your help--both with asking questions and finding solutions.

    Ready? Let's go!
