Banyan Global Learning

a CILC Content Provider

Content provider's logo

Banyan Global Learning is a virtual education content provider with a global network of innovative educators. Our live virtual programs connect learners to undiscovered places, new people and fresh ideas

Our programs are taught LIVE and on location (time zone permitting) with TWO teachers — one driving the lesson progression and the other engaging from the field. These dynamic programs are unlike any educational program you have experienced. 

We have created a suite of virtual programs to reach all levels of learners in three main content areas: Social and Emotional Learning, Digital Citizenship, and Global Citizenship.

We love designing new programs, so if we don't currently have what you're looking for, just ask.

Banyan Global Learning believes in the power of live video to bridge cultural divides, expand empathetic thinking and prepare our students to navigate real life. We are mission-driven to create authentic connections that fulfill the needs of students and teachers alike.
