Knowledge to Action (K2A) Design Challenges
Knowledge to Action (K2A) Design Challenges are short-term learning experiences where participants come together to create ideas for making change in their school or local community. Grounded in human centered design, our Knowledge to Action framework supports the identification of an issue of personal and community relevance, builds knowledge and understanding of the complexity of the problem hoping to be solved, and supports the creation of informed solutions designed to tackle the root causes of the issue.
Public presentation is core to World Savvy’s model. A School Showcase allows students to share what they have learned with the larger community and encourages discourse on the most pressing global issues of the day. It creates an authentic audience outside of their classroom, allows them to practice essential communication skills, and provides a space for students to receive positive feedback about their work. World Savvy provides support to structure a school level event that engages students, families and the broader community in a celebration of the K2A experience.
Micro-credentials provide educators with recognition for the skills they develop throughout their careers, regardless of where or how they learned them. They are competency-based, research-backed, personalized, and on-demand. World Savvy has designed 14 Micro-credentials that are offered through Digital Promise.
Micro-credentials can be taken individually by educators or can be incorporated into a school partnership as a facilitated group learning experience for educators.
World Savvy utilizes a developmental evaluation framework. All World Savvy School Partnerships include a pre and post partnership assessment, as well as a customized school report. Additional evaluation support can be added to any school pathway option. Examples of additional evaluation support include:
- Stakeholder Interviews
- Stakeholder Focus Groups
- Analysis of Student Work
- Situation Assessment
Global Competence Situation Assessment
A Global Competence Situation Assessment is a systematic and participatory process to generate a deeper understanding of the strengths, assets, challenges and barriers to embedding global competence education in a school or district. The process can help key stakeholders understand the appropriateness of global competence interventions to their specific context, avoid duplication of efforts and provide a baseline for program evaluation. The situation assessment should be participatory, involving a core group of supportive stakeholders who offer diverse perspectives but share a genuine interest, capacity and willingness to engage fully in the process of inquiry. The specific process will be outlined in collaboration with the partner and can include elements such as document review, interviews, focus groups and surveys.
