Why global learning?

WHY I STARTED GOING GLOBAL WITH MY STUDENTS?

I thought that global connections will inspire and motivate them to use the English language.

Then I realised  that it was a great opportunity for all these kids to travel to other schools and countries, to learn about life abroad and practise their English at the same time.

A window to the world was opened for them and this encouraged students to see things from a different perspective…because when you learn from textbooks there isn't an emotional connection..students are not motivated enough but when students learn from other students or professionals not only does it enhance and promote deep learning but it also changes students' lives and attitude to the world.

Global learning can expand hearts, minds and horizons and creates thinkers, leaders and doers…
