Active, Engaged Classrooms Where All Students Can ThriveWorld Savvy’s approach to learning is based on the belief that students learn best when they are engaged in relevant and important issues that impact their communities and the world. We believe that students’ lived experiences and perspectives are assets that can be leveraged in learning every day.
We identify and nurture connections to make learning personal and relevant.
Promote Active Learning Through Inquiry
We build global competence through active learning experiences across disciplines.
We support students to take informed action in their communities and world.
Reflecting & Adapting
We engage in ongoing reflection and adapt to emergent needs.
Our Impact on Students
Since our founding in 2002, World Savvy has reached 749,000 students and 6,250 educators — building the knowledge, skills, and dispositions for global competence.
94%of students were more open to new ways of thinking.
94%of students became more knowledgeable of the complexities and interdependence of world events and issues.
90%of students used research to adapt a solution.
The dramatic demographic changes we’re experiencing are an opportunity for us all; to leverage diversity as an asset and ensure all community members can collectively work toward economic vitality, social cohesion, and inclusion. School leaders, teachers, and parents are critical partners, and World Savvy is well positioned to lead this work across the country.”
