You are Invited to the Global Share-O-Rama!

I'm using a tool called Flipgrid to have educators respond to a series of prompts related to globally connected teaching and learning. The Global Share-O-Rama is located here and I'm looking for educators and global education organizations to participate. Consider doing any of the following:

  • Promote your project, organization, or book that relates to global education
  • If you are running a project and need participants or partners, let us know in this Flipgrid as well.
  • Share your favorite resource (article, book, tool, website etc) for helping educators connect to the world
  •  Questions about how on how to collaborate globally are also welcome.

I've created seven topics or Flipgrids within the Global Share-O-Rama; you are invited to respond to one or more of these by recording a short video of yourself discussing the topic. To participate, click on a topic, then the + sign, and allow Flipgrid to access the camera on your computer if necessary. If you are using an iPad, you can download the app, and use the code that is available in the top lefthand corner to join that particular grid. You can also leave responses for other educators who have posted to Flipgrid, too. 

Below are some examples from the Global Share-O-Rama. I hope you will join in and make some new connections to enhance your work with students! Please share this information widely.

Global Competence Certificate (GCC) courses are designed specifically for in-service educators who are interested in embedding global learning into their teaching practice, and preparing their students for the global reality beyond the classroom. 

Register HERE for the following courses: 

Inquiry-Based Learning for Global Competence

One global issue that demands immediate attention is how to balance societal and environmental health. This course explores a contemporary ‘state of the planet’ across ecological concerns. Students will analyze current IGO, NGO, governmental and community-based organizations’ work to address global environmental concerns on a local, regional, national, and global scale. 

Sustainability and Environment

Global learning requires a disposition of ongoing and sustained inquiry because of the vast knowledge bases it draws upon. Inquiry-based learning is a learning approach that is rooted in the investigation of questions and case studies, as well as problem solving. Participants will consider various approaches to inquiry, both for their own global competency but also for guiding students in the development of their global awareness.

If you have further questions please contact Connie Rensink at connie@worldsavvy.org

A minimum of five “mini-grants,” in amounts up to $4,500, will be distributed in the 2017–18 school year to support identified schools in sustaining, expanding, and strengthening their global education programs and to be recognized as mentors to other schools around California. Applicants must provide evidence of support for matching funds or in-kind services from their local districts to encourage increased short- and long-term impact of the project. Please note that indirect costs are not allowable under the terms of this grant award.   Schools with emergent, developing, and mature global education programs are all encouraged to apply. Awardees will serve as models of effective structures and strategies in global education, participate in a Global Schools Network community of practice, and receive support from other members to prepare for mentoring activities in 2018–19. These activities may include sharing knowledge, in-person training, advising on and supporting follow-up efforts, and providing feedback to other schools as needed. These activities are intended to help California schools strategically integrate global education practices into all grade levels and across all subject areas.   Funding for these awards is made possible through a grant to the CDE from the Longview Foundation as a follow up activity to the 2016 Global Education Summit https://www.mydigitalchalkboard.org/portal/default/Group/Viewer/GroupView?action=2&ql=globaled. The CDE and partner organizations are conducting this award competition based on the recommendations featured in the Final Report, Educating for Global Competency: Findings and Recommendations from the 2016 California Global Education Summit https://www.mydigitalchalkboard.org/cognoti/content/file/resources/documents/ab/ab4420e5/ab4420e5a514d0bc0e17be13486d7398998f9b20/educateglobalcomp.pdf.
