Who We Are
OpenWorld Learning is an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that supports children's school success by tapping the power of digital technology and peer teaching to develop leadership and ignite a love of learning. Since our inception we have proudly served more than 3,200 students, including 696 students who received more than 100,000 contact hours during the 2008-2009 school year.
Using interactive technology developed at MIT, our programs help children invent, engineer, create and design through fun and challenging, project-based learning. OpenWorld Learning is committed to bridging the digital divide and developing a community of energized learners.
A hallmark of our model is the concept of "Student Leaders", volunteers promoted from within our students who exemplify a love of learning, creativity, hard work and a passion for helping others. These leaders serve as learning resources for their peers, embodying the proven outcomes of peer-learning methodologies consistently demonstrated across educational situations. In this way, we strive to make learning relevant and fun while also equipping students with transferable life skills essential to long term success.
OpenWorld Learning's curriculum and results have received widespread praise from independent sources in education, community and business. This is reflected by highly acclaimed formal honors, including:
•2007 - Excellence in Education Award by Denver Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
•2007 - One of the 50 Most Innovative Technology Companies in the State of Colorado by CSIA - the network and voice of Colorado's information technology community
•2004 - Colorado Community Technology Program of the Year by Jared Polis Foundation
