For most students, it takes more than academic abilities to successfully navigate any education system, particularly in STEM-related subjects. My transnational trajectory both as a student and an educator spanned multiple educational systems and during this time, it became clear that the challenges I faced in overcoming language barriers and adapting to new cultures and ways of learning were not unique. Many students don’t have the support they need to succeed and this is why I am very excited about this research project. I believe that introducing an innovative multilingual online learning resource—Binogi—into the classroom has the potential to offer much-needed support not only to students but also to teachers and parents.
