Global Education: What the Research Shows. Information Capsule. Volume 0604
Blazer, Christie
Research Services, Miami-Dade County Public Schools
Teaching from a global perspective is important because the lives of people around the world are increasingly interconnected through politics, economics, technology, and the environment. Global education teaches students to understand and appreciate people from different cultural backgrounds; view events from a variety of perspectives; recognize the interrelated nature of conditions, issues, and events in the world; and play a part in finding creative solutions to the world's problems. This information capsule discusses the need for global education in America's classrooms and reasons why global education has not yet become an educational priority in the United States. The goals and objectives of global education, issues for globally minded schools to address, practical resources for teaching global education, and findings from research on global education are summarized. A summary of Miami-Dade County Public Schools' global education programs and a listing of online programs and resources available to teachers and students are also included. (Contains 25 online resources.)
