 model will present a practical framework for introducing a global perspective across the curriculum

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

 Education should prepare learners for entry into a fluid regenerative society instead of perpetuating existing roles, conventions and structures. Global education or a global perspective in education should be positioned at the forefront of this transformation.. A global perspective requires a new forward looking lens through which one sees the world in a new and different way and acts accordingly. To do this I have identified a number of key concepts that can be infused into the existing curriculum thus retaining the integrity of existing content areas provides a process in which learners acquire the skills, values and knowledge needed to succeed in a complex interconnected world.
