Learn more about Global Education!
- What does global education mean?
- What is globally competency?
- Am I globally competent? Is my school? Are my students?
- How do we foster global citizenship in our students, schools, and communities?
These are some BIG questions! I wish I could answer them all for you in a very succinct way. But I have learned that the answers will vary, depending on the person, location, and interactions with global issues. The goal of this page is to lead you to some resources that will help you answer these questions for yourself. The assessment tools will assist you and your school to identify your needs for increasing global competencies. Plus- you can learn more about what other schools are doing to engage their students to become global citizens!
