(Cross-posted at Connect All Schools Blog, January 12)

Over at Asia Society VP Tony Jackson’s terrific new Global Learning blog at Education Week Tony writes about the new Quality Counts report, which will this year look at American education in an international context:

“The competencies that are called for in these Asian school systems closely mirror the global competence definitiondeveloped by Asia Society and the Council of Chief State School Officers.

“Frankly, the Asian emphasis on global competence is a lot more genuine than what we see in the United States today. Ed Gragert of iEARN said it best: “Worldwide, ‘global education’ is simply known as ‘education.’” In the United States, rhetoric about meeting the demands of the global knowledge economy abounds, but it rarely translates into wide-scale change in classrooms.

Tony sees an opportunity for US educators and policy-makers to learn from their Asian counterparts, and vice-versa.

How do we encourage this wide-scale systemic collaboration? Does it need to be driven at the federal level? State level? District level? Classrooms? PTAs? Foundations? Corporations?

One creative effort from Tony and his Asia Society colleagues and fellow Connect All Schools partners VIF International Education, are proposed Teacher Mastery and Feedback Badges.

Will global competence badges be the catalyst that internationalizes our education system?

Stay Tuned.
