Valuing Self • Understanding Others • Building Community
There are almost no places left on earth that have not been touched by some form of globalization. Technology in the form of the internet, television, and movies alter students’ perceptions of the world, their views of their own culture, and how they perceive themselves. Students also move from their home cultures to new places through migration, making it hard to adapt to new cultures while retaining their own unique sense of place and self. Global education helps students know who they are, where they came from, and how they can contribute to the global society. Global education should not be about assimilating into dominant cultures, but rather helping students achieve their full potential while learning to value the beliefs and cultures of others. Learning Currents helps organizations and school systems learn best practices in understanding the global society.
