Presentation Description

Recently the New7Wonders Foundation sponsored a global competition to determine the New Seven Wonders of the World. The competition drew more than 100 million votes, and on July 7, 2007, the New Seven Wonders of the World were announced: Chichen Itza (Mexico), Christ Redeemer (Brazil), the Colosseum (Italy), the Taj Mahal (India), Petra (Jordan), Machu Picchu (Peru), and the Great Wall of China. These seven sights are truly remarkable and provide the ideal sites for visual, cultural, technological, and information literacy. This presentation will discuss and provide examples of group research projects that explore the New Seven Wonders and combined all four literacies.
