International Projects and Partnerships with the World's Schools

A World Bridge® is an international award-winning program for learning 21st Century Skills using advanced technology and teaching practices. The program utilizes a multi-organizational, real-time/real-world, placed-based learning approach. The foundation of A World Bridge® is the relationship-building between the schools, communities, and community-based organizations.

Multi-organizational, Real-time/Real-World, Place-based Learning

A World Bridge® integrates educational models that develop international leadership and economic sustainability while advancing educational research. These projects dynamically design and implement Real-Time, Real-World Project-Based Learning into the local curriculum, and account for the classroom content needed to address state and national academic standards. Students learn how to develop professional skills while working on international award-winning, collaborative projects, that have been shown to increase the potential for high-end college admissions and scholarships.

A World Bridge® utilizes cooperation and partnerships with state government offices, state education agencies, school boards associations including the NASA Ames Research Center, Association of Alaska School Boards' Consortium for Digital Learning (CDL), the University of Alaska system, University of Massachusetts at Amherst, the International Centre for Earth Simulation (ICES), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), USGS Innovation Center, United Nations Technology Innovation Labs (UNTIL) and business partners including Trilogis SRI, Alaska Aerospace Corporation, ASRC Federal, Kodiak Electric Association and more. These partnerships provide for the unique opportunity of both international mentorships and internships.

- Capacity building - continuous planning and implementation of advanced training programs utilizing multiple levels of technology. Training programs are localized based on a needs assessment. Rapid-prototyping of the training process is designed to accelerate acquisition of career-level skills.

- Rapid-prototyping for determining effectiveness of new or combined educational technology systems. These systems use a Research & Development approach for high-tech applications, new STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) content, other collaborative projects and professional development pedagogy.

- Development of statewide and international Project Based Learning (PBL) curriculum repository and learning management system for teaching and learning, based on student/teacher developed content from real-world projects. Academic standards and objectives will be gradually converted into Real-time/Real-world project systems.
