Globaloria in West Virginia: A Statewide Learning Network Model
Launched in 2007, Globaloria in WV has expanded to include thousands of students from middle schools, high schools, community colleges and alternative education programs across the state. As a first-of-its-kind statewide network for learning, this model demonstrates the potential for Globaloria to be implemented on a large scale, integrated at multiple grade levels, across the public school system and higher education. Educators implement Globaloria as an elective, a high school completer course, and as an integrated program within the school core curriculum, aligning the program with state standards and objectives in English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and 21st Century Skills (Global21).
Globaloria in WV is conducted in collaboration with the West Virginia Department of Education, the WV Governor’s Office, Knight Foundation, Benedum Foundation, Frontier Communications, the ESA Foundation, Caperton Fund, and the West Virginia Center for Professional Development.
Globaloria at East Austin College Prep (EAPrep), Texas: A School-Wide, Charter School Model with Full Integration across the Curriculum from Middle School to Graduation
Launched in 2009, Globaloria at EAPrep demonstrates the potential for Globaloria to be implemented as a school-wide teaching and learning opportunity. Every student takes a daily, 60 to 75-minute Globaloria class where they develop educational and social issue webgames focusing on original educational and social issue topics. EAPrep students engage in Globaloria learning year after year, from middle school through graduation, deepening STEM skills and digital literacy in preparation for success in college and beyond. The Globaloria curriculum at EAPrep is aligned with the Texas Content Standards for Mathematics (TEKs), ELA and Technology Learning. Support for Globaloria at EAPrep is provided by the AMD Foundation, Southwest Key Programs, the ESA Foundation, Adobe, the Caperton Fund, and the World Wide Workshop.
