Global Awareness and Perspectives in Global Education
Burnouf, Laura
Canadian Social Studies, v38 n3 Spr 2004
This paper examines the whole notion of global education by discussing theoretical and practical understandings by major figures in the field. Global education is a recent addition in social studies and there are many different understandings and conceptual which effectively teach the concepts in schools as part of the entire curriculum. A review of the explanation of Hanvey's five dimensions and the four­-dimensional model of global education by Pike & Selby as well as other figures in the field of global awareness and education are outlined. These understandings are used to form the conclusion that all students need to learn about global issues in school in order to become living and practicing citizens in our ever­-changing global society. In teaching social studies the need exists to shift from the Eurocentric way of examining the curriculum and looking at it from multiple perspectives.
