Global Campus is a platform where all Nord Anglia Education students (12000+) can go to access an exciting and engaging range of activities, events, competitions and challenges, across different age ranges.
Who is Global Campus for?
It’s for all NAE students! It has a core section for the majority of NAE students that is divided into the following categories: STEAM, Performing Arts, Writers Corner, Social Impact, Expeditions and Health & Well Being.
Excitingly, there are revamped and updated junior sections too (under 8s) with excellent initiatives to engage younger students, such as Story Sacks (Get on GC to find out what it’s all about!). The more senior students (16+) also have some excellent areas tailored to their needs, in the Senior GC section.
How can my child access Global Campus?
All your child needs is their school email address and password. They can access it via the IT portal here: https://portal.nordanglia.com/home/WAW. They can then click on ‘GC’ and sign in via ‘outlook365’ school email. They will then land on the GC homepage.
What are the benefits of Global Campus for my child?
Firstly, it connects your child to a whole new diverse and international virtual world, where they can work alongside and collaborate with NAE’s global student body,
It provides your child with engaging, unique and NAE tailor made challenges – aimed at stretching your child in their learning and supporting new learning opportunities.
GC provides a wide variety of tasks aimed at motivating your child on their learning journey. They can collect badges to show their learning progress, take part in live Q&A chats with MIT/Julliard professionals and take part in further competitions/projects/challenges – to really stretch their thinking.
Developing a student’s passion is also important and GC provide various outlets across a range of disciplines and areas to engage your child further with their passions.
These are just a few benefits of real engagement on GC but there are many more advantages to encouraging your child to truly engage with the GC experience.
Will my child use GC in school?
There may be certain areas/competitions from GC which teachers explore with students within school – however due to curriculum demands, teachers are unable to engage with all GC content in school time. That is why we greatly encourage students to become independent GC users too, and for parents to encourage them to use it more widely as a superb home learning tool (in addition to any in school GC aspects that they cover).
