"This Land is my Land, This Land is your Land" with Students from Africa

from Oiada International

Program image

The goal of our International Geography program is to help students understand their land and other lands around the world. Through a "LIVE" connection with students from Africa, students will describe places and environments from their country. Students can discuss how geography affects their lives. Students will utilize their research, critical thinking, public speaking and presentation skills in our program. By learning about geography from around the world from their peers, students will gain a better understanding and appreciation of the world we all live in.

Oiada International

Elizabeth, NJ
United States

Oiada International is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that has been providing award-winning educational and experiential programs via videoconference that takes learning beyond the four walls of the school building. Since the opening of our NJ and Ghana, West Africa centers in 2009, over 400,000 students in 50 US states and 32 countries worldwide have engaged in our programs. What differentiates our programs from other distance learning programs is that we give students the opportunity to interact “LIVE” face to face with their international peers in order to develop educational/cultural awareness and relationships. 
?
The primary goal of Oiada is to prepare students for the global workforce and empower them to become 21st century global citizens and world leaders. One way to make education relevant is to provide students with the necessary learning tools and opportunities so they gain the core competencies necessary to understand and appreciate the world in which they live while caring enough about others to want to make a global difference. Global education is not a new idea…but how to deliver that education is where we excel. Oiada’s programs provides a unique opportunity for educational and cultural growth, which gives students an edge in the classroom and a head start in life.
