Author: Julie Lindsay
Modern learning must be global, providing intercultural understanding and collaboration to personalize learning, achieve curriculum objectives and bring the world to students. Educators must be empowered and learning environments must be connected in order to flatten learning around the globe. This calls for a shift in pedagogy, a shift in mindset and the integration of digital and online technologies. How do we navigate these new waters of networked learning? What model can be developed for globally connected learning that will support classroom teachers, education leaders and higher education? In The Global Educator: Leveraging Technology for Collaborative Learning & Teaching, author and global education forerunner Julie Lindsay answers these questions and more, illustrating the need for intercultural understanding and collaboration to personalize learning and providing a vital snapshot of a time when the world is shrinking and becoming more accessible to all. The book includes: pedagogical approaches and frameworks for global online collaborative learning; technology resources to empower educators and education leaders to make meaningful connections; and case studies and contributions from more than 100 global educators who are embedding their practices into curriculum objectives and providing their students with invaluable educational experiences.
