Online Learning Ambassadors Embrace Global Learning

Wednesday, February 6, 2013

Introducing new technology into schools can be difficult, due to time constraints and a lack of resources. But your school can find a new way to help teachers integrate technology into the classroom.

A new partnership between Generation YES, a nonprofit organization that seeks to empower students to use modern technology in schools, and Oba, a cloud-based learning platform that encourages global collaboration, is allowing students to do just that.

Through Generation YES’ interactive, project-based curriculum, students from grades 4 through 12 can become “Oba Ambassadors” and learn how to mentor peers and assist teachers in blending online learning into all classes with an education platform called ObaWorld.
