Case Study 1.7: Julie Carey - Write Our World

The Global Educator - Case Study 1.7

Julie Carey - Write Our World

Julie Carey is a Flat Connections Global Educator who is following a passion for helping kids share their stories. She is an inspiration to all global educators as she focuses on supporting kids to tell their stories and creates a library of eBooks for other kids to access and learn from. 

As she told me way back before the book was published, "Our work is inspired by the emergence of collaborative online educational innovations that connect students from all over the world."

Julie's non-profit organisation 'Write Our World' is going from strength to strength. As a social enterprise it's aim is to support global citizenship and multicultural literacy. Make sure you browse the website  - as this blog post is written it now has 111 books, 382 authors and 25 languages represented!
