Mission, Vision and Values

Expanding Boundaries. Changing Lives.

Established in 1994, we have been thought leaders in the interactive virtual learning space since before “remote learning” and “virtual experiences” were catchphrases. Over the years, we have developed hundreds of partnerships—with museums, zoos, science and performing arts centers—to provide kids and educators with access to limitless learning opportunities.

We expand boundaries and change lives by making learning accessible, regardless of physical location or financial wellbeing.

Mission

We provide children and educators with inspiring and engaging virtual learning experiences that connect young minds to unique and diverse content, bringing the world to each student and narrowing the opportunity gap.

Vision

Connecting children and educators to compelling content and powerful learning experiences, leveling the playing field for all learners, regardless of location.

Values

ACCESSIBLE
We strive to reach as many communities as we can around the globe through the power of virtual learning. All experiences are affordable and completely customizable to give every classroom equal opportunity to interactive learning.

RELEVANT
All programs are well-researched and evaluated by teachers to ensure quality learning experiences. We embrace a breadth of topics to enable K-5 educators to find programs that tie in with students’ curriculum, interests, and lives.
 

INTERACTIVE
So much more is possible when students can interact with the specialists and subject matter experts themselves. Interactive learning is more engaging and more inspiring because students are active participants in the learning process.

CULTURAL
We serve students from all cultural backgrounds and deliver programs that represent diverse, global voices. By bringing the world into the classroom, we expand the boundaries of students’ lives, helping them build empathy for others.
