Benefits of our Global Innovation Program

Digital Media Academy will take care of everything from when you land until your departure.

Empowering Students

Move out of your comfort zone, learning social thinking and networking skills as you learn to collaborate with diverse cultures and build trust and safety in groups.

Supporting Educators

Get real-world experience using design thinking to create a human-centered solution to a pressing world problem and bring your idea to life with the guidance of Stanford mentors and industry experts.

Hands-on Projects

Learn how to think like an entrepreneur to create compelling, sustainable value as an innovator and how to effectively communicate the value of your ideas through storytelling.

Group Projects

Work in groups of 4-5 to create a Public Display of Learning to be shared in our FutureTech Showcase and a Film Reel of your group’s journey to be screened in the final GIR Film Festival.

“We flew all the way from Beijing to join the Innovation Race and were super excited to see the diverse groupings. We saw students coming out of their comfort zone and trying to face their social awkwardness. They had a great experience working with other groups from schools around the world. Additionally, today we must develop the soft skills and executive skills to work in the AI era, and the groups and tasks that DMA created helped the students to come out and develop those skills. ”
