Global Gateway to K-12 Education

The Global Gateway to K-12 Education for Students provides a unique “window-to-the-world” for schools in Missoula. The pilot program includes the development of a series of cross-cultural and global competence learning modules tailored for two elementary schools and one high school in Missoula. These modules are designed to support the teacher in the classroom with their individual curriculum plans and learning goals, by offering an additional, international and global perspective on a specific subject, question, focus or challenge.

This learning portal proudly joins forces with the:

Global Competence Seminar at Chief Charlo School

  • Montana World Affairs Council (MWAC):
    The MWAC facilitates the Council in the Classroom program. Council in the Classroom utilizes state-of-the-art video-conferencing technology, provided by Inspired Classroom.
  • Inspired Classroom:, a curriculum development studio, based in Missoula. Through the program, international experts have the opportunity to be guest speakers, by connecting to schools, students and teachers across Montana.

Global Gateway is excited about the partnership with Council in the Classroom and Inspired Classroom to deliver tailor-made seminars that provide students with an international and global perspective, expose students to “outside” content, provide a knowledge foundation, directly engage students, and giving them a chance to become more cross-culturally and globally aware and competent. 

With valuable contributions from:

Individual cross-cultural and global competence instructional material and learning modules are developed and facilitated by Multicultural Learning Solutions (MLS), the research and development unit in Global Gateway.
