Global Education

Teacher resources to encourage a global
perspective across the curriculum

Why adopt a global perspective?

A global perspective offers students and teachers:

  • an approach which takes into account the whole of human society and the environments in which people live
  • an emphasis on the future, the dynamic nature of human society, and each person’s capacity to choose and shape preferred futures
  • an opportunity to explore important themes such as change, interdependence, identity and diversity, rights and responsibilities, peace building, poverty and wealth, sustainability and global justice
  • a focus on cooperative learning and action, and shared responsibility
  • an emphasis on critical thinking and communication
  • an opportunity to develop positive and responsible values and attitudes, important skills and an orientation to active participation.
