Global Learning for Educators webinars are offered free twice monthly, September 2012 - May 2013. Please visit asiasociety.org/webinars for details and registration.
Global learning calls for a new approach beyond traditional school-community partnerships. It requires that students not only learn about other countries and cultures, but also apply their learning to complex local and global issues. As districts, schools, and educators strive to connect learning in and out of school, innovative models are emerging that redesign partnerships, staffing, time, curriculum, and use of technology. Learn about the framework and get a series of tools for creating expanded learning programs that bolster students’ global competence and academic success through project-based learning, service learning projects, internships, and other learning experiences outside of school hours and walls.
