One beauty of global learning is that it can take on so many forms, where one size does not fit all. This benefit also can pose challenges, like where to start, or how to make it meaningful? Join best-selling author of acclaimed Growing Up Global: Raising Children to Be At Home in the World and The Global Education Toolkit for Elementary Learners, and school advisor/mentor, Homa Tavangar, in an exploration of how to connect global perspectives and tools to passions and interests (of teachers as well as students) to fuel effective 21st Century learning. Learn simple, fun approaches proven to help build a global mindset among corporate executives, that are even more effective the younger the student. Participants should come away with inspiration to sustain their efforts for bringing the world home – even if they’ve never owned a passport.
