Educators can play a unique role in enabling their students to
participate on the global stage - whether in work or life. Global
Citizenship Education (GCE) encourages students to think beyond
their immediate community, towards the challenges and opportunities
of their globally connected generation. In this webinar, Matthew
will take you through the concept of GCE - where it comes from,
what it is, why it matters, and how it can be practically
implemented in the classroom. He will cover three broad themes in
current GCE thinking and practice: global orientation, global
skills and global action.
This talk will be of particular interest to teachers working in
international contexts, or wishing to incorporate cross-curricular
skills into their teaching of mainstream subjects.
