WE are the guides of our lifelong global learning journey.
Real-world stories that deepen our love for learning!
Global Learning Journeys make learning a joyful lifelong experience. Wordless videos that encourage curiosity and empathy for self, others, and our world. Written stories that make math and literacy real-world and relevant. Lesson plans that help you bring these conversations to other lifelong learners you know. Custom playlists so you can design your learner-centered lifelong learning journey.
Stories that make math and literacy feel relevant!
No more wondering “where am I ever going to use this math topic in life”. Let’s make math relevant by bringing all of these important things together:
Math, literacy, empathy, self-awareness, social awareness, global curiosity, critical thinking, communication, collaboration, creativity, self-awareness, mindfulness, perspective taking, recognizing and confronting bias, suspending judgment, overcoming prejudice, community engagement, listening, and compassion! Through the power of wordless videos.
Stories that you(th) love.
We are all so used to high quality content, but too often the videos we watch in school or “for learning” are pretty boring. That’s why world-class storytellers and educators design our stories to make it super engaging.
It’s also why our videos don’t have words: no prescribed narrative, no language barrier! Stories that help you(th) prioritize curiosity and understanding over judgment and bias. In so many languages! Student led learning.

Stories for a better world. For student led learning. Self directed learning.
Too many of us grew up without support to practice understanding.
Understanding diverse people, cultures, feelings, mindsets, perspectives & ways of life.
Without support to practice curiosity before judgment.
Without support to deeply sense. Instead, we were told we’re too sensitive.
Without support in learning to learn for life.
Too much instructing. Not enough guiding.
Too much what to think. Not enough how to wonder.
Too much “don’t show emotions”. Not enough embracing feelings.
Too much “be strong”. Not enough healing.
Brainstorming without “heartstorming”.
We need student led learning for our hearts.
Without building our empathy and curiosity muscles, our ability to see one another as unique, whole, and complex humans starts to wither away.
That leads to knots in our chests, bullying, prejudice, and bias. Judgment. Discrimination. Dehumanization. Conflict.
Violence and war in our hearts and minds. In thought, word, and action.
Trying to address our global challenges with wit and new ideas can feel good, but only for so long.
We can innovate to re-distribute all of our food and all of our funds, but how long will this last and what peace will it bring if we still hold on to bias, judgment, prejudice, ignorance, or hate deep in our hearts and minds?
That’s why humanizing stories are necessary for every one of us, ages 2 and up:
To love lifelong learning about self, others, and our world.
To learn to love self, others, and our world — and our deep interconnections.
To understand ourselves and each other through all of our complex and beautiful differences.
To learn to resolve conflict. To be at peace with ourselves and others.
To suspend judgment and truly see one another. To humanize. To heal together.
