What does it mean to be a citizen of the world?

What does it mean to be a citizen of the world? | Citizenship Education | Scoop.it

Hugh Evans started a movement that mobilizes "global citizens," people who self-identify first and foremost not as members of a state, nation or tribe but as members of the human race. In this uplifting and personal talk, learn more about how this new understanding of our place in the world is galvanizing people to take action in the fights against extreme poverty, climate change, gender inequality and more. "These are ultimately global issues," Evans says, "and they can only be solved by global citizens demanding global solutions from their leaders."

Education Technology and Data Insecurity

Education Technology and Data Insecurity | Citizenship Education | Scoop.it
Handing over data, often quite thoughtlessly, has become par for the course – in education and in society more generally. Although privacy experts have urged parents and educators to be more proactive about protecting children’s data and privacy) – while using Pokémon Go and other data-hungry apps – we now live in a culture of surveillance, where data collection and data extraction have become normalized.

Sarantis Chelmis's curator insight, January 4, 2:58 AM
You all remember Pinocchio... Ethika Project a fairy tale describing the adventures of a stubborn marionette in his quest to become a real boy. He has to go through life, fight its temptations by using his conscience, embodied by the cricket, before he finds his path. We are attached to this allegory because it well reflects the manifold challenges of life and our search for meaning. ETHIKA advocates a holistic and dialogic approach in personal development. Our teaching material wants to foster critical thinking, dialogue and active participation. In a non-judgmental atmosphere teachers and students can explore divergent opinions, discussion of possible choices, find out what is more valuable and learn responsibility.

How America's public schools keep kids in poverty

How America's public schools keep kids in poverty | Citizenship Education | Scoop.it
Why should a good education be exclusive to rich kids? Schools in low-income neighborhoods across the US, specifically in communities of color, lack resources that are standard at wealthier schools -- things like musical instruments, new books, healthy school lunches and soccer fields -- and this has a real impact on the potential of students. Kandice Sumner sees the disparity every day in her classroom in Boston. In this inspiring talk, she asks us to face facts -- and change them.
