Global education puts your classroom and students in the larger context of the world. By developing global competencies, students learn not only that they are part of the larger world, but also that they can take action to effect positive change in the world. According to the Asia Society, ” The idea of global competence articulates the knowledge and skills students need in the 21st century.” Globally competent students have the knowledge and skills to:
Investigate the World
Students investigate the world beyond their immediate surroundings.
Students recognize their own and other’s perspectives.
Students communicate their ideas effectively with a diverse audience.
Students translate their ideas into appropriate actions to improve conditions.
