Join us for this panel discussion featuring speakers from MAGPI, the National Constitution Center and other organizations capitalizing on using Internet2 to support students' exploration of civic issues. Panelists from content organizations and advanced networking organizations will share how they formed their project partnerships, budgeted and developed innovative educational programming. Learn strategies for developing your own projects and how to participate in existing opportunities, including the National Constitution Center's Student Exchange Project and the Multicultural Youth Exchange's Global Youth Violence Student Film projects.
