  •  
    "As a society, we are more interconnected than ever before. This makes it necessary to raise children to be aware of-and sensitive to-the different cultures, traditions, and perspectives from around the globe. We call this having "global awareness."

    A broadening understanding of such perspectives and their economic, environmental, political and social components helps foster better communication skills in our children.

    You'll find that global awareness is an intrinsic part of Global Digital Citizenship.

    Here are 10 child-friendly apps available on the market today that help promote better global awareness in our youth."

Going global: a literacy, a process, a call to action (and some resources) - @joycevale... - 1 views

    "When you are lucky enough to travel and visit with librarians all over the world, you realize the power and the talents of our community.
    One thing is clear to me: as librarians, we haven't yet leveraged our true power as global connectors.  Lately I've been thinking about our yet-to-be-realized opportunities and how we might realize them.
    You see, I see convergence.
    Never before have we had truly effective tools for synchronous conferencing and media-rich asynchronous group discussion. Never before have we been able to leverage our emerging online communities of practice.   Never before has participation been so possible.  Never before has our world been so flat. Never before has it be more obvious that the prefix geo might amplify themes in any curriculum.
    One of the titles in Heidi Hayes Jacobs' recent Contemporary Perspectives on Literacy series is Global Literacy.  This video introduction describes how the author/editor sees the intersection of three critical literacies: digital literacy, media literacy and global literacy"

Digital literacy - and all the elements contained within that term-  is probably the buzzword you hear most often. And for good reason: today's young students are living in a largely digital, quickly evolving world that their teachers did not have. And their world will likely become even more digital as time goes on."

What Can We Learn From the Global Effort Around Mobile Learning? | MindShift - 0 views

  •  
    "Closing the achievement gap and giving all students access to a world of learning online remains one of the strongest allures of education technology. In the U.S., that conversation is often centered on the newest shiny device, slickest software or free app, but internationally mobile technology is revolutionizing learning too, often without fancy gadgets. Recognizing the creative learning strategies being implemented in developing countries could help expand thinking in the U.S and inform the ongoing discussion about how to use technology to deepen learning."
