PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND IMPACT

MovingWorlds has partnered with Level Up Village ("LUV"), a renowned global education company that specializes in STEM courses with a virtual exchange component - to work with LUV's network of Global partners in the developing world to build capacity and implement project-based, student-centered, virtual exchange STEM classes.  

More specifically, purpose of this partnership is to;

  1. Train and Certify Selected Experteers to as LUV teachers and teacher-trainers, via a free online training program.  This training program will prepare Experteers to teach LUV classes and to work with local teachers on methodology and implementation.

  2. Once the Experteers are certified, they will be matched to local partner institutes in the developing world that have expressed a need for Teacher-training, class implementation, and up-skilling their teachers in on the ground engagements that can last anywhere between 9 and 26 weeks

  3. For this Pilot program, a limited number of 5 sponsored certifications are available for MovingWorlds members only.
