Global Education: Teacher resources to encourage a global perspective across the curriculum | Curriculum resource reviews | Scoop.it

The heart of global education is enabling young people to participate in shaping a better, shared future for the world.

 

Global education emphasises the unity and interdependence of human society, developing a sense of self and appreciation of cultural diversity, affirmation of social justice and human rights, as well as building peace and actions for a sustainable future in different times and places.

 

Global education promotes positive values and assists students to take responsibility for their actions and to see themselves as global citizens who can contribute to a more peaceful, just and sustainable world.

 

Australian global educators place particular emphasis on developing relationships with our neighbours in the Asia–Pacific and Indian Ocean regions.
