Innovative Approaches to Global Education Challenges
Global education is an ideology that deals with the enhancement of individual perception of the whole world. It is an approach that helps us to become global citizens. Global education has transcended the regular. With the dynamic nature of the society, global education has changed tune and it needs to dance to the tune of meeting societal wants. To meet these needs, we must take an innovative approach. Our challenges to achieving positive results include; curricular rigidity, the influence of mass media, uninformed teachers and so on. To solve these problems, we need to take the following innovative approaches;
Encouraging a non-bias system
It’s a very good initiative for us to come up with innovations that will discourage any form of discrimination. We must strive to attain a global village where we are not separated by our race, gender or religion in learning. These processes can be in the form of an interactive diversity talk show where we organize conversations and discussions in a thoughtful way to discourage discrimination. If we implement this, it will help to solve discrimination, bias, stereotype, and assumptions hindering effective global education by promoting a very good environment for learning.
Embracing a better story-telling approach
While story-telling may be a very good approach to promoting global education, telling the right story is one innovative means to counter stereotype. Such story-telling activity may be tagged oneness project where the world is literally brought to the classroom with free multi-cultural stories and lesson plans to explore cultural, social, and environmental issues. These stories will connect human experience to global issues such as climate change, water scarcity, migration, poverty, food insecurity, and sustainability.
Educating the poor
To make education thoroughly global, it must not be restrictive. Innovative and well-themed student organizations will serve as a platform for members(student) to volunteer and take part in rural education. These projects will help teachers in rural areas to design a student-centered course around problem-solving.
Partnerships with non-state actors
A very important innovative approach is a partnership which is critical for improving
educational capacity. Partnership encourages governments to fulfill education promised benefits in the ecosystem to meet the challenges ahead. With relaxed regulations and effective partnerships, Non-governmental organizations, businesses, and employers can work closely to build an outstanding learning generation.
Building a flexible curricula system
We all have to support open online courses in order to facilitate learning, support the delivery of industries and employers and to enhance their approaches to skills acquisition. In order to match the diversity of flexible learning opportunities, we need to encourage online learning. This includes computer-aided learning that will make it possible to factor in cultural differences and learning paces into modes of technological educational delivery.
The development of students’ global competence is not limited to a regular day in school. After-school programs can provide a valuable opportunity for students to further develop global competence while gaining additional academic enrichment.
In order to overcome global education challenges, we need to have well-taught humans who can always think of solutions. Challenges may abound but a very good approach will enhance global education.
