Sponsor Learn Around The World!

Volcano, Virtual Field Trip, GuatemalaGlobal trotting educator, journalist, and explorer, Brandon Hall aka GEO-B, virtually brings the world into classrooms via Virtual Field Trips. Learn Around The World Virtual Field Trips are live, interactive web shows that teachers use to instill global awareness and a safe environment to practice sound digital citizenship skills. During the 2017-18 school year, Learn

Around The World will be providing over 75 free virtual field trips per semester.  

Sponsoring a series of Learn Around The World Virtual field Trips is a great opportunity to publicly support global education locally, nationally, globally, or even all. By doing so, you align your organization and brand with Learn Around The World’s fast growing reach and with a vision of classrooms without borders.

Imagine if 10 years ago you could sponsor just one classroom to travel from the U.S. to Indonesia and come face to face with Komodo Dragons for the sake of exploration, discovery and scholarship? Well, today it’s possible with Learn Around The World’s variety of educational experiences. With the exceptions of built in safety, cost efficiency, and scalability to the tune of 9 classrooms per experience of course.

Learn Around the World is virtually changing what’s possible with educational field trips. Don’t miss your opportunity to support your future workforce, clients and partners in their educational pursuits.

We like what your company is doing for the state of education and we hope you like what we are doing! Enclosed are our sponsorship opportunities for 2016. Together, we’ll be able to bring the world to our students, one school at a time. Which school will you choose for your scholarship award?

Virtual Field Trips

Learn Around The World offers a variety of unique and authentic learning experiences via Virtual Field Trips. Our Virtual Field Trips are 45-60 minute live webinars. Our staff travels to unique locations around the world to document the people, places and things that make our world so wonderful.

GEO-B (Brandon Hall) then virtually guides classrooms on these experiences throughout the school year to a rapidly growing following of Learn Around The World Explorers (i.e., teachers and students).

Teachers love our program, but don’t take our word for it.

My students love going on virtual field trips.  The very next day after our field trip they asked where we were going today.  It’s the correct length, engaging, and helps the kids learn about other places.”

Marci Shrull - Texas Teacher

“My students thoroughly enjoyed their Virtual Field Trip experience. They were actively engaged throughout the trip and talked about all that they had learned for days following the event.”

Lydia Flynn - Idaho Teacher

“I can’t wait to see where we will visit next!! You have made a difference in the education of my students by exposing them to places that we are not able to actually visit in person, but through these virtual field trips, they are learning about the world at large!! My hope is that my students will be motivated to want to travel the world and experience all that is beyond just what is in their hometown!!”

Kate Hazen - Arizona Teacher
