O’ia-da’s latest project is the Akoma Ntoso Cultural Centers (ANCC). The ANCC is currently connecting students in the U.S. and Africa by utilizing our 21st century telepresence educational centers. The primary goal of the ANCC is to increase student test scores, decrease drop-out rates and to reduce the achievement gap of schools. We utilize state of the art videoconferencing technology to connect students with students in Africa. Through “LIVE” face to face educational and cultural exchanges, students become excited about learning. Our telepresence centers bring the classroom to life for the students while at the same time serving to increase their language arts, writing, public speaking, presentation, research, foreign language and critical thinking skills. We are an invaluable resource to teachers who are interested in accelerated learning methods, promoting global and experiential learning. We empower students to take charge of their educational experiences, and assist in their preparation for college and the work force.
