Renzulli Learning’s Global Collaboration provides students with the opportunity to collaborate on projects with students from around the world. Participating schools partner both locally and internationally on an opt-in basis through Renzulli Learning. Students can be grouped based upon any criteria within the system including interests, learning styles, and expression styles, or teachers can create custom groups.
Renzulli Learning’s robust Project Based Learning (PBL) System allows students to manage their projects and collaborate within a secure environment. The system includes the ability for teachers to monitor and track student progress throughout the project lifecycle.
Global Collaboration within PBL experiences supports students in developing 21st Century Learning Skills and advanced executive function skills such as critical thinking, communication, collaboration, time management, creativity skills, and global competency.
Research demonstrates that being engaged in group research projects enables students to develop advanced learning skills which can then be applied to all subject areas and leads to higher academic achievement. We encourage participating Global Collaboration schools to include a culminating event for students to showcase their projects. Renzulli Learning Global Fairs provide the opportunity for students to share their work to their fellow students, teachers, parents, members of the community, and a global audience.
Renzulli Learning offers Free Professional Development in best practices in our Global Collaboration module and interest-based Project Based Learning for teachers, which includes up to 9 university accredited Contact Hours.
