I believe that students could have issues with this because it is such a broad topic. They could easily get overwhelmed and distracted by having so many options at their fingertips. One way to help students with this is to provide them with a few organizations to research and select from. This will limit their searching and help them to stay focused.
The best part about connecting the classroom to the world is that all the content in the classroom automatically has meaning. Students can apply what they are learning to have a greater impact on the organization they selected. This way, students can see the effects of their learning and apply it to something that they are passionate about.
