building a global mind
We are creating an integrated curriculum of innovative courses, digital tools and social metrics for teaching and assessing global citizenry skills for schools with strategic objectives to teach global mindset attributes and community service to their students.
WHY FOCUS ON STORIES?
It is said that stories help us connect with others, communicate ideas and imagine all of life's possibilities. Perhaps the more our stories are shared, the more we will begin to consider the possibility that all of the stories within our communities matter.
