Short Session Description (one line):  INSTILLING GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP IN AND OUT OF THE CLASSROOM

Full Session Description (as long as you would like): 

Promoting “global citizenship” has become a popular trend within international schools. There is a huge benefit for students, schools and the world as a whole when students are aware of the world around them engaged in contemporary issues both on a communal and global scale. There exist four major ways to develop global awareness within the international schools: 1) curriculum design which embraces themes of awareness, empathy and a more holistic educational approach; 2) the use of technology that fosters connections between classrooms and destinations around the world; 3) social action projects that use service-based learning to create a deeper awareness of global issues; and 4) extra-curricular projects that offer a variety of tools to promote global citizenship. By creating global citizens, we are helping give rise a better world. I will provide concrete ways schools can achieve this, both on school-wide level and within each classroom.
