"Colored Glasses": Moving Intercultural Exchange into the Classroom
Seifert, Kim
Intercultural Education, v20 suppl S1-2 pS143-S149 2009
This paper describes a successful project that promotes the intercultural educational value of international exchange for students and youth groups. "Colored glasses" is a project of the German Youth for Understanding Committee aiming to enhance intercultural education by providing intercultural learning opportunities to students in primary and secondary education. It addresses the questions of (1) how to promote intercultural understanding within a diverse society without necessarily having the experience of going "abroad"; (2) how to approach students from different educational backgrounds and age-groups; (3) how to take into consideration a society that becomes more and more diverse; and (4) what are the adequate teaching/learning methods.
