International STEAM Collaboration for Students

For the fall semester of 2015, St. Joseph’s Academy has embarked on a journey of international cooperation through a partnership with Level Up Village (LUV), an online distance learning program. LUV provides a platform for students in the US to video chat asynchronously with partner schools across the globe; students in both locations learn new STEM skills, apply them to real-world problems, and find solutions through unconventional, design thinking. Course options include in-school, after-school, and summer classes; topics covered range from biology and chemistry to mobile application design and CAD/3D printing. Through the framework of LUV’s student-driven courses, pupils are able to guide each other in a collaborative learning effort, even across international boundaries. In addition to learning practical STEM skills, students also develop 21st century proficiencies like intercultural fluency and digital literacy. Hear firsthand accounts of how your school can benefit from coordinating with LUV and give your students new perspectives while problem-solving in STEM fields.
