Teacher Travel Opportunities

Global Classroom seeks to engage teachers and students on global issues that affect our world today. By providing information about travel opportunities to educators, we hope that global knowledge and understanding will be brought into K-12 classrooms around the Puget Sound region. Please visit the website below and check out the various international travel and exchange opportunities available to U.S. educators. Many of the opportunities are free or low-cost for teachers. 

Upcoming Travel Opportunity: 

2017 UAE Study Tour


MARCH 11 – 19

Educators from around the country are invited to apply for an expenses-paid March 11-19, 2017, study-trip to the United Arab Emirates in a program supported by the UAE Embassy in Washington, D.C.

As many as a dozen 6-through-12 grade educators from across the nation may be selected for the trip that begins with a one-day get-acquainted workshop at Washington’s UAE Embassy on March 10, then moves on to the UAE, a nation of more than 9 million people with a globally respected education system.

“The Portrait of the UAE” study trip includes exploration of culture, education workshops, travel and community events. The program is designed to supports curriculum development that “emphasizes 21st century skills and promotes collaboration between American and UAE educators.”

Educators who participate in the UAE study trip will be required to present classroom discussions of the experience that can be shared with other districts and at conferences.

Applications will be accepted until 5:30 p.m. (CST) on Thursday, December 15. Submit applications to Amy Miller, Director of Education at the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth, at amiller@dfwworld.org.
