Global Education is a compelling term that is getting a lot of use these days, which is great. But what exactly does it mean? Different things to different people, I’m sure, but here are my definitions:
Education is a basic human right (see the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 26)
Everyone is entitled to a quality, free education
Global education is about sharing resources, collaborating, and learning from each other
Global education helps all students to become global citizens, something our students need to prepare for their futures
Technology can help create educational equity and a flat education – leveling the educational playing field
To further our understanding of Global Education, I have begun compiling a list of resources.
