What it is: EduTecher’s Change the World is a campaign started by @adambellow at EduTecher to transform the world one penny at a time. Between October 1 and November 25 every new user that enters EduTecher.net will allow @adambellow to donate 1 penny on their behalf to a charity that his audience votes on. The charity that gets the most votes will get a check. The idea is that we can change the world together, one person at a time. Want to make an even bigger impact? If you have a blog, website, or Facebook page you can post the Change the World badge or link and every time one of your readers or friends clicks on it another penny will be donated. I am taking @adambellow’s idea the step further and will offer the same. For each new user that comes to iLearn Technology between October 1 and November 25 (2010), I will donate a penny to a charity that we will vote on here. So, if you would like to double your difference, you can add the EduTecher’s Change the World logo and link along with the iLearn Technology Change the World logo and link. This is a great idea of a little way that we can start making a difference in a bigger way.

How to integrate EduTecher’s Change the World into your curriculum: Why not create a similar school wide campaign to change the world one penny at a time? You can collect pennies as a class or if you have a class blog or student blogs, issue a similar Change the World Challenge. As an added bonus, map out where your “pennies” are coming from and have your students write an introductory letter to the charity and include a map of where the money came from! If you aren’t familiar with the EduTecher website, it is definitely worth checking out. EdTecher reviews web 2.0 tools for the classroom, they have a great collection of web 2.0 for students and teachers all in one place.
Tips: Add the EduTecher’s Change the World badge to your website, blog or Facebook page and then double the change by adding the iLearn Technology badge. Together we can (and will) change the world. If you are extending the change please let me know in the comments below, I would love to see how far reaching this is!
