Globalization, for us art educators, does not merely consist of how artistic themes are altered, changed, and improved upon through globalization. Globalization is composed of many institutions and ideologies that we can use in our art education practice.

Lack of toilets blights the lives of 2.5bn people, UN chief warns

Lack of toilets blights the lives of 2.5bn people, UN chief warns | Global perspectives for teaching and learning | Scoop.it
UN deputy secretary general says failure to address sanitation and open defecation threatens disaster for third of humanity

The world’s lack of progress in building toilets and ending open defecation is having a “staggering” effect on the health, safety, education, prosperity and dignity of 2.5 billion people, the UN deputy secretary general, Jan Eliasson, has warned.

Speaking as the UN prepares to debate a new set of development goals – and in the aftermath of the rape and murder of two Indian girls who were attacked as they ventured into a field to relieve themselves – Eliasson said failure to address the issue of sanitation would prove disastrous for a third of humanity.

“Sanitation is cross-cutting: if you make progress on sanitation, then you dramatically improve the achievement of at least four other goals,” he told the Guardian.

“One of the main reasons for child mortality is diarrhoea and dysentery because of bad water and a lack of sanitation. You get a much better way of working with maternal health issues: I can’t tell you how many women are dying in childbirth because of a lack of clean water. You’ll affect education, because people can’t go to school when they have these huge problems, and you will have productive people who can go to work.”

Eliasson said building toilets for women was fundamental to gender equality, education – and safety.

What are the universal human rights? - Benedetta Berti

What are the universal human rights? - Benedetta Berti | Global perspectives for teaching and learning | Scoop.it
The basic idea of human rights is that each one of us, no matter who we are or where we are born, is entitled to the same basic rights and freedoms. That may sound straightforward enough, but it gets incredibly complicated as soon as anyone tries to put the idea into practice. What exactly are the basic human rights? Who gets to pick them? Who enforces them—and how? Benedetta Berti explores the subtleties of human rights.

SAPERE - Philosophy for all

SAPERE - Philosophy for all | Global perspectives for teaching and learning | Scoop.it

Philosophy can be used to improve teaching and learning, for the lasting benefit of individuals and communities

Philosophy for Children / Communities aims to encourage children (or adults) to think critically, caringly, creatively and collaboratively. It helps teachers to build a 'community of enquiry' where participants create and enquire into their own questions, and 'learn how to learn' in the process.

Selena Prior's insight:

This is the UK version of VAPS Victorian Association for Philosophy in Schools. There are a wide range of resources for teachers to access.

International Day of Democracy: Overview

International Day of Democracy: Overview | Global perspectives for teaching and learning | Scoop.it

The Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) is the global organization of national parliaments. They work to safeguard peace and drive positive democratic change through political dialogue and concrete action.

In 2014, they are promoting International Day of Democracy through our Member Parliaments in 164 countries around the world.

Selena Prior's insight:

The International Day of Democracy is on the Monday the 15th of September - what will democracy look like in the hands of our students? Which people rule in your lived version of democracy? Do you think it needs to change or is it always changing as the people who rule do? Perhaps this is a day we should be marking on the calendar as important as a day connected to war?
