How does one teach citizenship in school. This is one small model used at Sargent Park School.
We often talk about citizenship in school but rarely teach it formally. More and more often we are told to: “think globally and act locally.” Yet, in our increasingly digital world, our kids may not know our neighbours in the house next door nearly as well as they do their online friends a click and half-a-world away. Thinking locally today means thinking globally. Designing creative digital projects that fit into our curricula provides students opportunities to become better global citizens. As an educator, how important do you think it is to prepare students to be citizens in this new, connected world? Are you ready to create change in your classroom?
