Additional Information

Our mission at Level Up Village (LUV) is to globalize the classroom and facilitate seamless collaboration between students from around the world.

What Is Level Up Village?
Level Up Village (a product of Language Testing International) is a global communication platform that is uniquely designed to allow students to expand their learning and engage in meaningful exchanges with students around the world. With Level Up Village, students engage in collaborative tasks that encourage the development of 21 st century skills and global competency through our unique peer-to-peer global collaboration experience.

How Does It Work?
Our easy-to-use platform facilitates one-on-one project collaboration and cultural exchanges between students from around the world. The platform provides students with a safe learning environment (COPPA compliant!) where they can build their own profiles, exchange fun facts about each other, discuss their projects, and talk to each other via guided video exchanges. Students send and receive videos using the LUV platform on a camera-equipped desktop computer, a smartphone, or a tablet.

What Do We Offer?

  • A pairing system that allows you to find and connect with the best global partner match for you.
  • Courses with themes and objectives that tie directly to international goals and standards (for example, UN SDGs, ISTE Student Standards, and World-Readiness Standards for Learning Languages).
  • Flexible modules that adapt to your classroom needs with 4-8 weeks of collaboration time.
  • Real-world tasks that focus on building academic knowledge, global citizenship, and intercultural communication skills.
  • Student Can-Do Self-Assessment and Teacher Analytic Rubrics that build students' awareness of their learning and help them reflect, make comparisons, and develop cultural awareness.

Students participating in LUV courses get to know partner students in other countries by exchanging video messages about their lives and their specific project-based tasks. Through this process, they not only learn 21st century skills, but also develop empathy and global competency. We offer in-school, after-school, and summer enrichment programs. We offer Arts & Sciences courses and Languages & Cultures courses.

  • Arts & Sciences. For students ages 4-18, our Arts & Sciences courses allow students who are learning sciences, arts, literature, and social studies to pair up with classrooms in another country to discuss various course topics, ranging from music & sound to science & ecology.
  • Languages & Cultures. For students ages 12-18, our Languages & Cultures courses (currently available in Spanish and English) allow language students to build their intercultural communication skills by exchanging videos with a classroom in another country in their target language. They'll use the language in authentic ways and gain new cultural insights from their peers abroad.
  • Special courses. We are able to create special STEM and Global Citizenship courses with partners in Africa, China, and Latin America. Contact us for more information.

Fostering Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) and Global Competency
Social and emotional learning (SEL) is an essential part of education and human development. Self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making are the core components of SEL as outlined in the CASEL Framework that Level Up Village fosters with its curriculum.
