The GVC Story
The Global Virtual Classroom (GVC) is a free online educational program for primary and secondary school students from around the world. This project fosters cross-cultural understanding, collaborative learning, and giving back to others while providing an opportunity to learn 21st century information technology and website design skills.
The GVC Contest, a multi-national team website design contest provides an opportunity for primary and secondary school students from different countries to work and learn from students in other countries, as they collaboratively design a website on a topic of their choosing. Plaques and cash awards are presented to the schools of the winning teams and each student receives a certificate of participation.
The GVC Clubhouse offers a non-competitive opportunity for students to work with their peers from other countries on a variety of collaborative learning projects ranging from language class exchanges, environmental research, collaborative science projects, and discussion groups.
