“…To me who lived in South Korea for 11 years, India was quite new to me. Everything was new, such as roads, buildings, and people…” – Out of Eden Learn student, Cookieman (Yoobin), Chennai, India.

“When I leave India, I am going to make a long video of me walking in my neighborhood. I am going to remember this place,” Out of Eden Learn student, Howlingwerewolf7 (Tae Yeon), Chennai, India

Yoobin’s neighborhood map was selected as the new cover photo from the Out of Eden Facebook page. There are over 700 schools (think approximately 20-30 students per school!) involved in the Out of Eden Learn project. It’s quite an achievement to have her map chosen among all those schools. Congratulations to Tae Yeon too. Her map was selected for the Out of Eden Learn Instagram page.

We got this message from Out of Eden this past week after sharing our work:

“I hope this email finds you well. I just got back from a week away from the office and had an opportunity to check out your blog and the gallery walk your students participated in.  Amazing work! They seem really engaged and their maps are beautiful.  I can tell they spent a lot of time and effort on their projects.  Thank you for facilitating such inspiring work!” – Sheya, Out of Eden Learn
