Exposure to Unique People

We offer schools the unprecedented opportunity to have their students speak directly with Screenwriters, World Class Scientists, Aeronautical Engineers, and Olympic Athletes.

Another Tool for Reaching Students

Our Experts reveal to students practical applications of classroom material - creating a more lasting educational impression.

21st Century Learning

Seeing, meeting, and connecting with students from around the United States greatly expands a student’s knowledge base and perspective.

Turn-Key Solution

We handle all the logistics, including the sourcing, staffing, coordination of subject matter experts, content development, supplementary reading materials and technical support.

Professional Development & Teacher Enrichment

Our Subject Matter Experts’ unique backgrounds and experiences not only enrich the students’ knowledge base, but also provide information that teachers can build upon for future lesson plans and curriculum.

Technology required

The technology requirements to integrate theLinktoLearn into the classroom are minimal.

  • Classrooms only require:
  • A web camera and microphone so that students in the classrooms and the Subject Matter Expert can see each other as well as interact with one another.
  • High speed internet access to www.theLinktoLearn.org in order to attend the web based learning units.
