Connecting with partners in developing countries is often an eye-opening and impactful experience for U.S. students, but what is it like for their global partners on the other end of the collaboration? Four students from rural Kenya wrote to us about their daily experiences with electricity, water, life at school, and how they have been inspired by their Level Up Village courses at Kenya Connect.
Level Up Village’s newest literature course – Global Conversations: The Giver – prompted some interesting and thought-provoking dialogue between students at Eastern Middle School in Connecticut and their global partners in Kenya, Ghana, Jamaica and Argentina this spring on issues such as the role of government in people’s daily lives, discrimination, poverty and corruption.
We have been busy developing new curriculum here at Level Up Village and are proud to announce some exciting additions to our roster of global education courses. Designed to develop 21st Century skills, our courses all include collaboration and cultural exchange with Global Partner students in developing countries. What a great way to get students energized about what they’re learning and develop a global mindset!
