LOL for Classes
Link Online Learners is a safe way for teachers and classes to connect and be social with other teachers and young people from around the world.
In each of our 45 minute sessions held in a Zoom chat room with vetted volunteers, we make time and space for young people to connect, learn and grow together!
As a social gathering, your students will have the opportunity to learn and share informally about cultures and ways of life around the world.
Youth members with great ideas join break out rooms supervised by adult volunteers to create projects like podcasts, plays and music.

Everyone at the LOL table is interested in what others have to say, what they do and their perspective. From all walks of life, we are interested in the cultural similarities and differences in an internationally mindful way.
To really understand other cultures, we learn from the heart. Not just compassionate but actively seeing and seeking the best for others. We are empathetic in our listening, speaking and doing.
From the introverts to the extroverts, everyone has a place at LOL. The act of courage to show up and be present, no matter the time of the day. To speak up, to perform, to take action is the LOL way.
We are all in this together. We are driven by our desire to get and stay connected, no matter what the world throws at us. Connected across borders, cultures, religions, perspectives, and ways of life.
LOL sessions are a time for young people to be curious, show empathy, build confidence in a connected community. The Social Emotional Learning (SEL) and language learning that happens in LOL sessions is nurtured and celebrated.
Joining LOL can,
- Enrich the learning of units of inquiry about the world
- Offer social conversation practice
- Build confidence speaking with groups
