Intercultural Virtual Exchange of Classroom Activities
The IVECA Center for International Virtual Schooling (d.b.a. IVECA) is a US-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization in Special Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and associated with the UN Department of Global Communications (DGC).
The IVECA Center supports all levels of schools and universities across the world to participate in its global collaborative learning program called IVECA (Intercultural Virtual Exchange of Classroom Activities).
What We Do
Programs & Projects
Through the school curricula integrated with the IVECA program, students in different countries will perform individual or group projects in their classrooms according to the weekly activity topics provided in the IVECA web platform.
Through virtual teachers’ rooms, participant teachers in different countries share their lesson plan ideas, teaching strategies and their teaching viewpoints regarding intercultural understanding. Teachers’ pedagogical, intercultural and technological strategies will be exchanged to effectively enhance their students’ intercultural competence.
Through the online international teacher education courses in the IVECA platform, university professors can co-teach their students in different countries to design intercultural exchange lesson plans and develop teaching and learning materials for students’ virtual exchange activities.
Higher education professors and their students in the field of education, culture, policy and international relations can have intellectual and intercultural discourses through virtual conferences and presentations with IVECA's platform.
The Global Virtual Roundtable gives students and educators the opportunity to speak with and learn from peers around the world and offers a platform where participants can further develop their skills in intercultural competence. These are a fantastic opportunity for youth leaders to develop and share their voice and knowledge on a far-reaching platform.
IVECA participates and hosts partner schools at various events and conferences carried out at the UN Headquarters in New York. This incredible connection gives students and teachers an unparalleled international learning experience, while exposing them to the highest level of work currently underway in the international arena.
