Modern learning must be global, providing inter-cultural understanding and collaboration to personalise learning, achieve curriculum objectives and bring the world to students. Educators must be empowered and learning environments must be connected in order to 'flatten' learning around the globe. This calls for a shift in pedagogy, a shift in mindset and the integration of digital and online technologies. How do we navigate these new waters of networked learning? What model can be developed for globally connected learning that will support classroom teachers, education leaders and higher education?
In The Global Educator: Leveraging Technology for Collaborative Learning and Teaching, author and global education forerunner Julie Lindsay answers these questions and shares pedagogical approaches and examples to empower educators and education leaders to make meaningful connections. Finally, with contributions and case studies from more than 100 global educators, the book provides a vital snapshot of a time when the world is shrinking and becoming more accessible.
