Going global: a literacy, a process, a call to action (and some resources)

Going global: a literacy, a process, a call to action (and some resources) | PYP | Scoop.it

Jacobs defines global literacy as the ability to be a fluent investigator of the world, to be able to examine different perspectives, to be able to report on and share ideas, and to take action on those ideas.  Being globally literate requires learners to be able to collect meaningful information about people and places and personalize what they are learning.
