6 Why is Global Awareness Important for 21 st Century Students?

7 7 The Next Economy is Science and Knowledge Economy - need scientific and technological literacy Resource-Challenged Economy - need critical thinking about sustainable economies Globally Interdependent Economy - global competence is a core competence Demographically Diverse Economy - requires cross-cultural leadership skills Innovation-Driven Economy - requires students who can learn how to learn and adapt to rapid change

8 8 Global Trends: Economic Source: Keystone India India China Japan EU US Other India China Japan EU US Other India China Japan EU US Other 200420252050 Percentage of World GDP China, India, Japan are expected to be 50% of world GDP within 30 years -- up from 18% in 2006.

9 9 In the 21 st century West Virginia students will be: Working with people all over the world in joint ventures and global work teams Solving global problems such as AIDS, avian flu, environmental problems, and resolving conflicts Working for international companies –Selling to the world –Buying from the world Managing employees from other countries and cultures Competing with people on the other side of the world for jobs and markets ARE THEY READY?

10 How is our world different?

11 11 Global Context/Demographic Trends Increasing diversity in our schools and workplaces –Increased populations from different parts of the world require a citizenry with increased understanding of other cultures –US Hispanic population has grown 34% since 1995; projected to grow 73% in the next 20 years –US Asian and Pacific Islander population has grown 41%; projected to grow 86% In West Virginia, the number of students in K-12 schools who speak a language other than English at home has doubled in the last 8 years.

12 12 Global Context/Technology Trends –Wiring of world from 1998 means that much work can be done anywhere. 24/7 global production teams. –Internet usage (people older than 12) 77.6% in United States, South Korea, Singapore. 67% in Japan 67% 11% in China 11% (143 million people) 3.5% in India –However, these percentages are all growing exponentially.

13 13 Global Context/Education Trends Future careers in business, government, science, health care, law enforcementall require greater international knowledge and skills Minorities underrepresented in international careersneed to be exposed to international content before college Access to good jobs now requires new skills

14 Global (International) Knowledge Global (International) Skill Sets Global (International) Disposition Global Awareness:

15 Global (International) Knowledge Teachers infuse global perspectives and contributions frequently into all disciplines and at all grade levels. Students have in-depth knowledge of differences, similarities, conflicts and connections in world regions, cultures, and ethnicities across all disciplines.

16 GLOBAL AWARENESS Continuum of Implementation IndicatorNo ImplementationLimited Implementation Emerging Implementation Significant Implementation Exemplary Implementation Global KNOWLEDGE = Knowledge of other world regions, cultures, and global/international issues Teachers never address global perspectives in lessons or used as part of instruction. Students lack basic knowledge regarding other world regions, cultures, ethnicities. Teachers rarely address global perspectives or present a global context during instruction. Students have some basic knowledge regarding other world regions political ideology and a limited frame of reference regarding current world events. Teachers occasionally reference world perspectives but references are generally too generic and address one single region/nation/c ulture/ethnicity. Students have knowledge regarding a particular world region/nation/c ulture/ ethnicity but lack a systemic understanding of global issues. Generalizations frequently occur. Teachers infuse global perspectives and contributions frequently in specific disciplines (Social Studies, World Languages). Students have adequate knowledge of differences and similarities in world regions/nations/ cultures/ ethnicities in specific disciplines. substantial Teachers infuse global perspectives and contributions frequently into all disciplines and at all grade levels. Students have in-depth knowledge of differences, similarities, conflicts and connections in world regions, cultures, and ethnicities across all disciplines.

17 Our teachers at all grades levels and in all subjects areas are working to bring global perspectives to their classrooms and expose their students to the rich diversity and complexity of the wider world.

22 Global Skills- Communicating World Teachers Language teachers –maintain a student-centered classroom that is completely communicative based. –exclusively utilize the target language for instruction –Employ a variety of tools to facilitate language acquisition for students. Students –Have access to articulated, world language classes beginning in elementary and including more than 1 language choice –apply interpretive, interpersonal and presentational modes of communication –Can address authentic real world tasks and interact with native speakers of the target language.

23 GLOBAL AWARENESS Continuum of Implementation IndicatorNo ImplementationLimited Implementation Emerging Implementation Significant Implementation Exemplary Implementation Global SKILLS= Communicating in other languages World Language Teachers maintain a direct instruction and exclusively grammar-driven classroom model. The target language is not utilized for instruction and the focus if placed upon learning about languages versus using language. Students have minimal access to study world languages. Those that take world language can only complete grammar-drill exercises outside of a context. No opportunities exist for real communication. World language Teachers mostly employ a direct instruction and grammar-driven classroom model. The target language is seldom utilized for instruction and the focus if placed upon learning about languages versus using language. Students complete grammar-drill exercises with some contextualization. Opportunities for communicating in the target language are limited. World Language Teachers employ a grammar-driven classroom model that is contextualized for the purpose of communication. The target language is occasionally utilized for instruction. Students mostly complete grammar exercises and engage in limited contextualized communicative exercises. The goal of interacting with native speakers is intended for future opportunities. World Language Teachers frequently maintain a student-centered classroom with a focus on meaningful communication. Teachers mostly utilize the target language for instruction and employ numerous tools including visuals, gestures, manipulatives and realia in order to facilitate language acquisition for students. Students periodically apply interpretive, interpersonal and presentational modes of communication in order to address performance – based tasks and potentially interact with native speakers.

27 Global Skills – Working in Global Environments Teachers –regularly facilitate interdisciplinary cross-cultural connections –across multiple content areas (e.g. inviting international guest speakers, arranging e-pals for students, designing project-based learning activities with international collaborations, international exchanges) Students –are active participants in the international community –are engaged in problem-solving to address relevant, real-world, and real-time concerns.

28 No ImplementationLimited Implementation Emerging Implementation Significant Implementation Exemplary Implementation Global Skills working in global or cross-cultural environments Teacher utilizes basic textbook materials and presents the material without real-life connections to the international community. Students have no experience interacting with the international community. Teachers incorporate some outside resources with textbook materials to reference the international community. Instruction is delivered rather than interactive. Students rarely connect or communicate with the international community. They have an awareness but are unable to effectively connect with it. Teachers coordinate one or more specific cross-cultural connection, however connections generally address one single culture. Students interact with individuals from a specific group within the international community. Generalizations may occur.
