Knowledge to Action (K2A) & Project Based Learning

Based in Design Thinking, K2A is a multi-step process in which youth learn about an issue, research potential solutions to address the root causes of the issue, think creatively and critically about how they can impact the issue, and devise an action plan to create positive change.

Case Study

World Savvy developed a case study approach, aimed at supporting student inquiry and deeper understanding. Global issues are complex with a wide array of perspectives to unpack, a case study starts with an authentic example that supports students with the voice and ideas of people who are deeply impacted by the issue.

WorkShops and Institutes

World Savvy offers a variety of workshops and institutes for educators including the Institute for Integrating Global Competence, Assessment for Global Competence and Teaching with the Sustainable Development Goals. World Savvy also customizes workshops for school and district partners.

Coaching

The World Savvy coaching framework aims to support educators as they embed global competence into their unit and lesson design, and overall classroom culture. World Savvy coaching takes a facilitative approach supporting educators in the following areas; design and planning of project-based curriculum and assessment; lesson and instructional design implementation; and analysis of student work.

Design Thinking Challenges / K2A Popups

Knowledge- to- Action (K2A) pop ups are one day design challenges for middle and high school youth to come together and create ideas for making change in their community. At a K2A pop up, youth participants will work in groups to explore, interview, brainstorm, and build action around a question addressing an issue in their community.

Student Festivals

A World Savvy Festival is a culminating event for students and educators participating in World Savvy programming. The Festival brings together students, educators, parents, and community members, to celebrate and further students' progress and work. Students share Knowledge to Action projects and engage in a Knowledge to Action Experience (K2AE) with their peers, which is a micro design challenge.

Leadership Support

World Savvy collaborates with school and district leaders around embedding global competence more deeply at all levels. Through this collaboration, a strategic vision is developed with various stakeholders.

Situational 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 specific organization, community or system.
