Making Meaning in a Standards-Based World: Negotiating Tensions in Global Education
Klein, Jennifer D.
Educational Forum, v77 n4 p481-490 2013
In a largely standards-driven educational climate, educators are challenged to navigate the tensions between standards-based, scholarly pursuits and the more experiential, student-driven techniques of technology-enabled global education. At a time when these tensions are at their zenith, we need to prioritize global competencies and other 21st-century skills alongside more scholarly and standards-based education so that all learning has meaning and purpose for our students. This article explores how global educators are developing integrated approaches that include a strategic combination of technological tools, global partner organizations, high-quality resources, and a well-defined sense of the skills and knowledge to be fostered through global learning.
