Global Learning in Practice

Global Learning in Practice

By engaging with global learning and the key idea of interdependence, children and young people of all ages are supported to acquire core dispositions towards themselves, others and the environment. They gain understanding of concepts such as identity, diversity, fairness, conflict and sustainability; and a range of relevant skills relating to:

  • self awareness
  • communication and empathy
  • conflict resolution and collaboration
  • critical and creative thinking
  • taking action

These valuable skills and related concepts and dispositions are mainly taught through cooperative, experiential teaching and learning methods. Through these, learners are supported to construct their own understanding and develop skills in ways that are meaningful and motivating, creating optimism and action for a better world.
