WCCI has Special Interest Groups or SIGS, one of which is Media and Technology. This wiki houses projects and discussions on using media and technology more effectively to improve curriculum and instruction and to advance the "Culture of Peace" using an interdisciplinary approach, action research, active learning and various teaching methods worldwide.

During the WCCI 15th World Conference, the Media and Technology SIG convened under the leadership of Dr. Joyce Pittman and was guided through a series of meetings and presentations that resulted in an agreement to continue developing and implementing a worldwide collaborative project to advance Peace Education in research, conferences and meetings, online teaching and learning. The goal is to advance global development of curriculum and instruction using viritual media, digital imagery and movies to tell peace stories that encourage and allow people to talk about and share their reflections about the meaning of peace.

We invite you to join the journey and travel with us online around the world to collect and share these stories. You can read more about this project on the SIG-IT "Symbols of Peace"™ Project page. Follow us as we begin to update projects that span a 5-year period since 2008 to present.
