    • HAVING WHAT IT TAKES
      What Students Need to be Globally Competitive
    • THE FLAT WORLDMore and more we are living in what has been called a “Flat World”A flat world means that more people around the globe can participate in world affairs.This includes the need for more global education.
    • What is global education?
      Global education is an effort to cultivate in young people a perspective of the world which emphasizes the interconnection among cultures, species, and the planet.
    • What is the purpose of global education?
      • Its purpose is to develop in youth the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to live effectively in a world possessing limited natural resources and characterized by ethnic diversity, cultural pluralism, and increasing interdependence.
    • What it takes to be globally competitive
      Friedman said, “In the future, how we educate our children may prove to be more important than how much we educate them.”
    • Skills Students Need to Achieve
      • Learn how to learn
      • Have Passion and Curiosity
      • A Need to Like People
      • Nurture Your Right Brain
      • LEARN HOW TO LEARN
      Constantly absorb new info
      Be excited about learning
      Love to learn
      Learn new ways of doing old things
      Be motivated to teach yourself
      -Teachers should create a sense of excitement in learning to use these skills for learning.
      • HAVE PASSION & CURIOSITY
      • CQ + PQ > IQ
      • Passion to learn (passion quota)
      • Curiosity to discover (curiousity quota)
      • Is over intelligence quota (IQ)
      • Freidman said, “Nobody works harder at learning than a curious kid.”
      • A NEED TO LIKE PEOPLE
      • This starts with teachers. You can’t light a fire of passion in someone else if it doesn’t burn in you to begin with.
      • Students need to see a teacher who really cares.
      • They in turn will develop that fire.
      • People skills will become more valuable than computer skills.
      • NURTURE YOUR RIGHT BRAIN
      Left Side - Constructive
      Right Side - Creative
      Artistic execution
      Emotional expression
      Pursuing the transcendent
      Tackling challenges
      Forging relationships
      Seeing the big picture
      We need to work these components into learning by having the ability to create and capacity to empathize
      Sequences of transaction
      Solving routine problems
      Analysis of components
      Execution of transaction
      Literalness of thought
      These are components we must have to learn, but there is more to learning than transaction.
