Connecting the Local to the Global in the New Age of Enlightenment

This webinar presents a series of ideas and practical tips for enabling children to engage in rich problem-solving activities where they make clear connections between local and global issues.

Andrew Tidswell, Director of Professional Development at Discovery Education poses and answers questions such as:

• Why is context important? How can we ensure students can connect to their learning in meaningful ways?
• Why is a local/global approach essential to modern learners?
• What resources and tools can support children to make these connections?
• What connections do we have on our own doorsteps that will act as a doorway for children into the global?
• How can this approach help to develop the 4Cs of Learning?
• How can curiosity be used to harness and develop these skills?
