Welcome to the One World School. The school is currently
being developed. Please see our Vision and Mission statements to get an idea of
the intended audience, scope, and philosophical direction of the project.
Nothing in the project has been finalized. Everything is
open to consultation. We are looking for volunteer teachers, artists,
musicians, administrators, and technical people to help accelerate the
development of the school.
The software used for the school and supporting websites is
open source, meaning free to all to use and modify, which means that continued
improvements at many levels can be expected in the future. The One World School is being developed on a platform
called Moodle. It is the best free, open source learning
management system available and it will provide an excellent path for growth as
the school expands. Moodle is basically run by the teachers on behalf of the
students with help from the parents.
Another platform we use is called Mahara. It is an excellent open source platform
for portfolio management. If moodle is run by teachers, mahara is run by
students. It is a public or private central location for students to
demonstrate learning progress and highlights the development of
skills and services over time. It is seamlessly linked to our moodle or it can be accessed
directly. It is called Brighter Bubbles.
A third platform we use is called Wordpress. It is the largest and most
successful open source blogging platform in the world today. About a third of
all websites in the world are built with wordpress. It is easy to learn but has
great depth and width if additional functionality is needed. We use wordpress
as the frontend, or public-facing entrance into the One World campus of
websites. It is called the Open Bubble.
If you are interested in helping us develop a universal school
based on spiritual values, scientific truth, community development, and justice
for all, please contact us. We will be happy to share more and listen to your
desires, needs, and goals. Maybe we can walk this path of service to humanity
