Where do you get your content from? Who develops your content?

The Global Sleepover has a team of educators, children’s illustrators and writers, researchers and curriculum developers who have developed all the content, games, and boxes. All content and materials in the Boxes have been tested with over 1,000 parents, teachers and children and meet National Common Core Standards as well as International Baccalaureate (IB) Standards.
All content is intended to define and promote 21st century skills. 21st century skills empower children with the skills they need to engage in tomorrow’s global world. With these skills, they will be better prepared to address issues of global, social, and environmental concern, work collaboratively with individuals from different cultures and countries, develop and utilize innovative and entrepreneurial skills, and develop civic, critical thinking, and communication literacy.
