Eye-Opener: The Beauty of Africa

by  Oiada International

Program image

Africa is truly one of the most misunderstood of all the continents. Africa is four times the size of America. Its people speak over 2,000 languages, and the continent itself experiences all four seasons. It is one thing to hear facts about Africa. We could spend all day enumerating different facts about the continent and its history. However, we've found that the one way to truly get to know Africa is by is by taking a virtual trip to the continent. Through this live face to face interaction with our tour guide your students  get to see the beauty of Africa and learn first-hand the similarities and differences between their cultures without leaving the classroom. When exposed to reality, all myths and misconceptions once held are dissolved.

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 500,000 students in 50 US states and 77 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.
