STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

""Everyone is talking about the importance of collaboration, yet every day billions of children still learn in isolation," says Dr. Yvonne Marie Andres, founder and President of GlobalSchoolNet. "In an increasingly flat world, our youth will face intense competition that is bound to have enormous social and economic implications. Young people need to develop global perspectives on important issues such as economics, business, technology, environment, diplomacy, and culture, within safe, teacher -directed learning activities. Educators need support and mentoring to transition from traditional on- site learning to blended learning environments.""
