Teaching women around the world how to code.
Girls in Tech’s Global Classroom is an online learning platform designed to educate, empower and engage girls and women around the world. The goal: equip girls and women with the critical technology skills they need to prepare them for a career in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
Thousands of girls and women from around the world have benefited from the Global Classroom program since its launch in 2014. The curriculum covers key website programming and design skills.
The coursework combines a learning platform with social media, apps and APIs to create an environment that enhances and transforms the learning process. Throughout the course of study, students receive a constant feedback loop coming from social data and informing — and refining — subsequent courses.
