In today’s fast paced technological world, acquiring 21st century skills, is of the utmost importance. These skills refer to a broad set of knowledge, work habits, and character traits that are believed to be critically important to excel and succeed in today’s world. In line with this, global connection is a must for students. It helps them stay connected and updated with what’s happening in the other parts of the world and get themselves future-ready.
Being the leaders in education, we constantly ask ourselves two questions. Firstly, what’s new happening in the world that our students need to grapple with and secondly, how does we connect them with what’s happening in the world with the classroom teaching. Making these connections easier, we use innovation in order to improve the process of teaching and learning.
‘Global Campus’ is one such secure and personalized online learning platform, offered to the students of Nord Anglia Education that connects over 64000 students from across the globe. Being part of Nord Anglia Education, the world’s leading premium schools organization; our students at Oakridge International Schools are obtaining easy access to the Global Campus. They get the opportunity to learn and collaborate with other fellow students who are connected from over 29 countries.
With this platform, students get access to Nord Anglia Education’s global partnerships and programmers with world-renowned organizations. Collaborating with MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) develops students’ abilities within STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics); students’ work with The Juilliard School boosts their creativity, resilience and team-work through the performing arts, and Nord Anglia’s partnership with UNICEF empowers students to work together to make the world a better place by tackling its Sustainable Development Goals. Encouraging students to discuss, collaborate, and celebrate one another, Global Campus amplifies classroom learning through life-changing experiences.
While our students collaborating through global connections, they develop the 21st century skills required to be future-ready. They also get access to Nord Anglia’s global library, that connect these students with international leaders in their fields as well as the chance to enter online challenges and competitions that encourages to think beyond the classroom learning.
