2013 Syria Deeply Global Awareness Foreign Policy and Education
The Institute of International Education and Syria Deeply invite you to a panel discussion and networking reception on the occasion of Open Education Week.
This event, hosted on the occasion of Open Education Week, will bring together school leaders, teachers, university faculty, government, business sector, nonprofit organizations and other stakeholders to explore how to infuse U.S. classrooms with foreign policy and global awareness to ensure that students are prepared for life and work in the globally interconnected 21st century. This discussion will explore frameworks for change, including what to teach and how to teach (i.e. how does technology affect teaching and learning); the role of Funding Agencies and Government in promoting and leading change; and how to use technology.
“It is critical that children in the United States be prepared for futures in the globalized world. They must master essential reading, writing, math and science skills, acquire foreign languages, learn about the world, and—importantly—understand America’s core institutions and values in order to be engaged in the community and international system.”
