Quest Network BlueZones: "Explore * Question * Ask"

Quest Network BlueZone is an inspirational site for journeys through global education. BlueZone was founded by explorer and National Geographic writer Dan Buettner.

Registering online for free gives educators access to all the resources and videos for a variety of global projects from looking at common threads in lifestyle (health and fitness) to looking at your senior community.
Two quests to check out are on Central America and Okinawa, Japan.

How BlueZone works is registered classes log onto the website and interact with the exploration team that may be anywhere in the world. They vote online to decide what the exploration team will explore the next day. The next day the students get to watch through video, exactly what the exploration team was voted to do.
Pretty cool.
