This website contains unit plans designed for teachers, by teachers. The units explore the themes of global education across the grades and across the curriculum. The units contain all of the necessary handouts and materials to be easily utilized in the classroom setting and are consistent with the outcomes of the BC Curriculum. The creation of this site and the units were made possible through a joint CIDA and BCTF project.
Virtual Researcher On Call (VROC) is an educational program that connects K-12 classrooms with Canadian subject matter experts for customized, interactive video calls. The best part? VROC is available to teachers across Canada at no cost.
Over 350 Canadian researcher and professional profiles are listed in our online directory, ExpertBook. Educators can search this directory using key word(s) and contact these subject matter experts directly to request one or more video calls. VROC connections can take place in English or French.
BIG NEWS!!! VROC has recently expanded to include ALL SUBJECT AREAS.
