Set your schools and students apart with a global education framework that complements your existing priorities.
The students of today will be competing for the jobs of tomorrow, and a global approach to learning across grade levels and subject areas will prepare them for their future careers.
Being equipped with problem-solving skills prepares students to successfully navigate the global marketplace and think critically about the world around them.
Why global education?
How old do you have to be to change the world?
- Can seventh graders tackle the effects of climate change?
- Can fourth graders improve the health and well-being of people halfway around the world?
- Can first graders create solutions that address food insecurity in their community?
At Participate Learning, we believe it’s never too early, or too late, to start thinking globally.
Why choose Global Leaders?
Global Leaders is a holistic framework that complements your existing school priorities. We provide the support schools need to ensure a global experience for all students and colleagues to help achieve the following goals:
“The more children learn about the world, the more they realize what is possible.”
–Katie G., former Participate Learning Ambassador Teacher
Create environments that are rigorous, standards-aligned, and engaging.
All students need to know how to read, write, and do math, but they also need to know how to apply these academic skills in real-world contexts. This is what global citizens do.
Our partner schools develop students with the attitudes, skills, and knowledge to be global leaders–students who create solutions, tackle difficult problems, and affect change in their communities and beyond.
What does it mean to be a Global Leader?
As students engage in global learning, they develop a combination of attitudes, skills, and knowledge that demonstrate ten core competencies. These competencies empower learners to pay attention to the world, feel connected to it, and take action to make it a better place.
Global Leaders Pathway Designations
As teachers in our Global Leaders’ schools advance through their own learning, they progress through three specific designations–each corresponding to a deepening of their skills as Global Leaders learners and educators.
At every stage of the Global Leaders Pathway, partner schools are recognized for their accomplishments. From banners to display in the school to social media campaigns and shout-outs, we work alongside our partners to highlight and celebrate successful implementation and pathway progression.
