Pinhey, Laura A.
The Internet is an important resource for K-12 global education teachers. Developments over the past two decades have increased the media exposure of nations and interactions among them in politics, trade, education, science, medicine, entertainment, and athletics. Good global education curriculum encourages understanding of cultural differences and similarities, tolerance, and a globally interdependent view of the world.
