The Global Classroom Exchange (GCE) is a our company's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative.
It is also an opportunity for its founder John Musau to give back to his communities both in Kenya and in the US.
As John has engaged communities in rural Kenya on the benefits of internet connectivity, it remains clear to him that lack of access to technology has hampered workforce development for most youth as well as obscured exposure to essential technology based community services.
With this in mind, John has established private and public partnerships as the force to support a collaborative platform that leverages technology to allow students and educators in different locations to collaborate in real-time, both inside and outside of the classroom. In this environment, students work across time zones and multilingual contexts on group projects, quickly crowdsourcing topics and potential content, co-constructing plans, establishing timelines, and rapidly implementing approaches. The ultimate goal is for students to implement sustainable solutions through STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) projects that positively impact global socioeconomic, cultural, and environmental challenges.
