More than ever, learning is intimately linked with the wealth and wellbeing of nations. Our environment is making new demands on all of us, especially in the way we think about education. It has become a linchpin in planning for Canada’s future.”

Our Solution

DIGITAL HUMAN LIBRARY (dHL) EMBEDS INDUSTRY IN EDUCATION

dHL is an agile resource designed to address evolving needs and trends in education in response to our rapidly changing world and workforce. We do that by connecting K-12 students with hundreds of industry experts around the world for live educational programs, career talks, Q&As, and mentorships, complimented by thousands of virtual tours and virtual reality experiences that immerse students in industry-based, real-world experiential learning.

When students video conference with dHL Experts, and explore virtual tours and virtual reality, they develop:

  • critical thinking and problem solving skills, and a growth mindset through exposure to different industries
  • adaptability and flexibility as a result to interdisciplinary learning, similar to industry overlap, de-siloed business units, and cross-functional teams
  • cultural competencies and an equitable and inclusive worldview by engaging with diverse people and experiences from multiple fields of work
  • transferable skills and soft skills, and proficiency in the change-supportive competencies that are associated with improved organizational performance across industries
  • strength of character and empathy as they participate in humanizing experiences
  • global citizenship and passion for work, by experiencing and solving global problems
  • technological skills necessary for workforce readiness and effectiveness, reducing the need for re-skilling and up-skilling in training and organizational development programs

We Need Your Help

Sponsorship is essential for K-12 students to have access to modern, safe, and relevant experiential learning opportunities. Equity is about ensuring that all students have access to culturally diverse guest speakers and a global field trip experience, paired with opportunities to learn Indigenous knowledge, perspectives and world views in ways that eliminate the barriers of geographic location and socio-economic status.
