The Summer International Education Institute started with the Bridges
Festival Celebration held from July 23 - July 27, 2014. This festival was a
culmination of activities by students, teachers, parents and community
members involved with the Bridges Conference that took place between
January and June of this year in various countries.
The Summer International Education Institute started on Monday, July 28,
2014, and will end on August 8, 2014. Classes start at 8:30 a.m. and end at
2:30 p.m. each day.
The purpose of the Institute is to bridge the gap between cultures and
education through teamwork and global partnerships. The Summer
International Education Institute provides a collaborative and blended
learning experience for every student to interact with other students from a
different culture. Some of the institute courses include: Science and
Technology Exploration, Course Work on Ipads & Personal Computers, and
Cross-Cultural Team Building Activities.
This is a great way for the School District of Janesville students to partner
with international students for a global learning experience in their own city
