What is Global Competence?
According to World Savvy , Global Competence refers to the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary to navigate and succeed in today’s interconnected world. Globally competent individuals are life-long learners, have an appreciation for cultural differences, an ability to understand and consider multiple perspectives, critical and comparative thinking skills, problem solving abilities, comfort with ambiguity and change, and understand globally significant issues.
Purpose of this Guide:
To provide resources and materials to educators and administrators in developing a globalized education framework. The resources available here have been developed and tested by teachers globally and reflect my experiences as a Teachers for Global Classrooms Fellow.
Please contact me with any questions, comments, or recommendations. I am excited to collaborate with teachers & classrooms of all subjects, all grade levels, and all locations. When the magnitude of the problems in education become overwhelming, I just remember "I Will Be A Hummingbird."
