Challenge

In the age of remote learning, educators and students need easy access to innovative, dynamic, participatory and engaging educational resources. The first step to cultivating global competency skills amongst students is to expose them to new realities and perspectives that inspire and challenge them to investigate the world beyond their immediate environment. Designed as a fast track to global citizenship education, SIMA Classroom is filling an enormous gap in global education.

Solution

SIMA Classroom is a subscription-based virtual educational platform, comprised of award-winning short films and VR/360, paired with dynamic, collaborative, and ever-current resources that are curated around the Global Goals, the 2030 framework, as well as Common Core and IB Standards. SIMA Classroom provides learners with an engaging platform to advance the 21st century skills required to become active participants in their own futures and to thrive in our ever-changing world.

Long-Term Impact

Serving over 60,000 students in 40 countries with 90% in underserved areas receiving free access to the platform, we want to continue to ensure equal and unrestricted access for students regardless of their economic background. With your support we can meet ever increasing demand and provide educators with invaluable ways to deliver and advance dynamic global learning that inspires students to become proactive participants in shaping a better world.
