Our children are at an advantage when they experience other cultures and develop skills in a connected world. They are better prepared to be productive and compassionate citizens in an increasingly global economy, and they are able to improve their communication skills, collaborate effectively and be ready for multicultural workspaces. Empowering educators with the tools to foster this environment in the classroom is a critical part of the process. The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) has been leading the way in this field. As part of its extensive publishing program, ISTE will be releasing in July 2016 The Global Educator: Leveraging Technology for Collaborative Learning & Teaching by Julie Lindsay. In The Global Educator, Lindsay illustrates the need for intercultural understanding and collaboration to personalize learning, achieve curriculum objectives and bring the world to our students by answering these key questions: How imperative is it that educators connect themselves and their classrooms to the world? What emerging education leadership styles are shifting pedagogy and why should we be taking notice of this? What are the essential benefits of embedding online global collaboration into the curriculum? What are simple steps that educators in the classroom can take to become more globally minded and start to change their practice? How are emerging digital technologies supporting this move to online global learning and collaboration? In addition to answering these questions, the book provides practical resources and powerful case studies from educators and education leaders in the United States and throughout the world who are forging connections across the globe, embedding these practices into current curriculum objectives and providing their students with invaluable educational experiences, including: -- more -- Yvonne Marie Andres, a California-based global collaboration expert and co-founder of Global SchoolNet, which has been at the forefront of telecommunication-based learning. Librarian and media specialist Toni Olivieri-Barton, based in Colorado, has participated in and led many online global projects across K-12 levels. She was the runner-up for an ISTE Online Learning Network Award for creating opportunities for online independent studies at the middle school and high school levels. And Anne Mirtschin, an award-winning teacher in Australia, finds and designs opportunities for her students and fellow teachers and brings rich learning activities to the classroom. Global collaboration has changed the learning ecology of her school and had a positive impact on her students. For educators and curriculum developers, The Global Educator is an invaluable resource to support and nurture a global learning experience for children and students everywhere.

These scholars were honored with the Distinguished Global Scholar Award presented by the International Assembly of the National Council for the Social Studies, the largest professional organization for social studies educators in the United States.

An acknowledged challenge for humanitarian democratic education is its perceived lack of philosophical and theoretical foundation, often resulting in peripheral academic status and reduced prestige. A rich philosophical and theoretical tradition does however exist. This book synthesises crucial concepts from Critical Realism, Critical Social Theory, Critical Discourse Studies, neuro-, psycho-, socio- and cognitive-linguistic research, to provide critical global educators with a Cultural Historical Activity Theory (CHAT) framework for self- and negotiated evaluation. Empirical research spanning six years, involving over 500 international teachers, teacher educators, NGO and DEC administrators and academics, traces the personal and professional development of the critical global educator. Analyses of surveys, focus groups and interviews reveal factors which determine development, translating personal transformative learning to professional transaction and transformational political efficacy. Eight recommendations call for urgent conceptual deconstruction, expansion and redefinition, mainstreaming Global Citizenship Education as Sustainable Development. In an increasingly heteroglossic world, this book argues for relevance, for Critical Discourse Studies, if educators mediating and modelling diverse emergent disciplines are to honestly and effectively engage a learner’s consciousness. The Critical Global Educator will appeal to researchers, academics and postgraduate students in the fields of citizenship, development, global education, sustainability, social justice, human rights and professional development.

Teachers today must prepare students for an increasingly complex, interconnected, and interdependent world. Being a globally competent teacher requires embracing a mindset that translates personal global competence into professional classroom practice. It is a vision of equitable teaching and learning that enables students to thrive in an ever-changing world. This thought-provoking book introduces a proven self-reflection tool to help educators of all grade levels and content areas develop 12 elements of such teaching. The book is divided into three sections: dispositions, knowledge, and skills. Each chapter is devoted to an element of globally competent teaching and includes a description of that element, tips for implementation delineated by developmental levels, and links to additional resources for continuing the journey. Examples of globally competent teaching practices include - Empathy and valuing multiple perspectives. - A commitment to promoting equity worldwide. - An understanding of global conditions and current events. - The ability to engage in intercultural communication. - A classroom environment that values diversity and global engagement. Throughout, you'll also find examples of these practices at work from real teachers in real schools. No matter what your experience with global teaching, the information in this book will help you further develop your practice as a global educator—a teacher who prepares students not only for academic success but also for a life in which they are active participants in their own communities and the wider world.

On the face of it, there would seem to be little argument that our nation should have an educational system that produces at least a minimal cadre of experts about other peoples and cultures, as well as professionals in business and government who can transact negotiations across national borders. We should have scientists and technicians who can extend and share human knowledge across the globe. And, finally, we must have citizens knowledgeable enough to support tough leadership decisions and policies in a complicated and dangerous world. Against this background, the time has come to organize coalitions to support school-based international education programs. The case studies provided here reveal the successful experiences of state agencies, universities, world affairs citizen groups, foundations, and regional collaboratives.

The term "global education" deals with cross-cultural and international issues involving cultural, political, economic and ecological in nature. Given its emergent role in knowledge production and distribution, and in shaping consciousness, we look at the information superhighway, also known as the Internet, as a "source" of global education.
