FAST FORWARD - Activating Global Citizens

Rachel Gibbs (@RachelGlass88) at Heritage Elementary School in Madison, AL reveals and explains a long-term project dedicated to activating global citizens in a 5th grade gifted classroom. She and her students elegantly combine the four primary categories of growth of the Forward Team to make an impact on the world: highly meaningful technology integration, global participation, project-based learning, and accomplishment-oriented assessment. The giant misconception in education is that activities of this nature are reserved for gifted classrooms or electives. We can do this every day, everywhere.


  1. Really inspiring! This is the kind of education our world needs.

  2. Great insight into some amazing things happening in her classroom! Love her assessment technique with, "novice, adventurer, or master."
