We are thrilled to share some great news with all of you!

A video featuring Southwest Key’s East Austin College Prep Academy and produced by one of our educational partners, The WorldWide Workshop and their Globaloria program called “Voices From the Field,” is an official selection for the Lights. Camera. Help. film festival, happening in Austin July 29-31.

The film was chosen from among 235 worldwide entries and features a student from our East Austin College Prep Academy talking about the Globaloria learning platform, and the impact it has had on her life.

Our East Austin College Prep Academy, in partnership with The World Wide Workshop Foundation and AMD, is the first school in Texas and the first charter school in the country, to integrate Globaloria as a school-wide teaching and learning platform, and is leading the nation in offering this game-making course as core curriculum to all its students starting in the 6th grade. Globaloria is a college-prep and career-prep course in which students learn how to create educational games that solve social issues. The Globaloria curriculum is aligned with the Texas Content Standards for Mathematics (TEKs), ELA and Technology Learning and is designed to teach STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) by engaging students through this innovative platform and approach.

Here is the video and I would encourage all of you to go see the video live in person and support the film festival. It is being held in Austin, Texas between July 29-31, and you can get more information and buy tickets here.

Congratulations to the World Wide Workshop, Globaloria and everyone connected with the program and the film!
