Global Learning Workshop  

October 29, 2013
One of the most exciting challenges of teaching and learning today involves engaging students in learning about the broader world; tomorrow’s jobs and lives will require a citizenry capable of understanding the broader world. Through presentations and collaboration, this workshop will help educators develop their personal background, tap into new resources, and use new technologies to engage students in active learning about global systems, societies, and culture. This workshop is particularly relevant to those teaching social studies, languages, and language arts from grades 4-12.  It will include sessions related to discussion on aspects of the newly adopted state social studies standards that focus on international education, a session on teacher travel and study grant opportunities, opportunities to bring the world into the classroom virtually, global education teaching strategies, a film study of When We Stop Counting---a program that examines the changing demographics and increasing diversity of Nebraska schools, and more. This workshop has been developed by a small committee of high school and university global educators through the support and in collaboration with the Malaika Foundations, as well as funded through the generosity of Humanities Nebraska.

The workshop will be hosted at ESU 10 on Friday, November 8 from 9:00am-3:00pm.  Lunch will be provided through the generous support of the Malaika Foundation.
