The missing corner stone in nowadays intercultural learning and working environments – a new practical model developed in “Snowblog CTnet city” project by Language Connections Organization

Designing and implementing intercultural distance education environments, as well as planning cross-cultural workplaces in organizations, in today’s diverse societies, might be frustrating. The amazing technological leap forward has not been matched by a cognitive development and necessary competences.

Outcomes in both intercultural distance education projects and in cross – cultural organizational team work, depend on interpersonal and intergroup empathic and collaborative dialogues. Such dialogues emerge in a lab-like process, nurturing the 21st century competences in a specially designed social environment.

“SnowblogCT netcity” provides such a model.

It has been developed by Language Connections Organization based on several proof of concept pilot projects and many implementations among youth and K-12 university students from four different geographic regions, across a wide array of individual and group divides, gaps and differences.

The model, which was presented at MIT LINC international conference ( Cambridge USA, May 2010) can be integrated in any existing system.
