"Children learn what they live," reads the poem by Dorothy Law Nolte, and it is with that in mind that World Education Connection works to celebrate the unique gifts of all children. By valuing their own qualities, children learn to value those unique qualities of global teammates.

"If a child lives with tolerance, he learns to be patient...If a child lives with acceptance, he learns to love."


World Education Connection promotes positive social and emotional development, empowering students with a greater sense of self, community and global connection.



For all Students

To be SEEN - Guided by an adult, and using a variety of audio

5-12, locally and globally.

To be HEARD -  The students who are connected speak about

real life issues related to themselves, their community and the


To be VALUED - Students feel a greater sense of belonging,

accepted by their classmates, connected to their own

community, and learn to respect the culture of their

 global teammate as well as their own.



 We connect your classroom with another classroom in another part of the world. This becomes your global teammate for the entire school year of September – May of the following year. Teaching the skills of what is needed in today’s interconnected world.


As a global team,  you will get to know each other and learn about each other’s culture. Global teammates will collaborate on a name and logo and support each other throughout the year.


On May 9th, 2018, we will host the second annual World Education Day Of Connection. This day will bring together all the global teams in celebration of the connections made, share the collaborations on projects that contributed to the greater understanding of all, and hear from exciting guest speakers.
