KO Students Earn Global Online Academy Citation

Alyssa Temkin ’23 and Elias Brandt ’23 were selected from more than 400 presentations to receive a GOA Citation from the Global Online Academy.  Citations are awarded by GOA and member school faculty to those presentations that best represent the goals of the conference: 1) Raising awareness, 2) Promoting grassroots action, 3) Promoting institutional change. Congratulations! 

 The Catalyst Conference is a global, online event for students in the GOA consortium to share projects designed to spark change in their communities. Each presentation is the culmination of a capstone project that asked students to transform learning from their courses into research-based solutions for real-world issues. 

The mission at Global Online Academy is to reimagine learning to empower students and educators to thrive in a globally networked society. GOA fosters new and effective ways for students to learn, through best practices in education, and promotes students’ global awareness and understanding by creating truly diverse, worldwide, online communities.
