Strategies for school development

Strengthening the integration of global learning in schools is a long-term process, which requires a big commitment from school leaders and teachers. Even if the schools do not yet fulfil the requirements for certification, global learning can be integrated into everyday school life step-by-step – here are some examples from our project:

School networks for global learning
In Upper Austria, we are concentrating on smaller schools, advising them on how global learning can be integrated into their school culture. Together with the schools, we are developing an approach adapted to their specific needs and limited capacities. The schools are linked in order to promote exchange and mutual learning.

School agreements on global learning
In Hungary, Artemisszió is supporting four pilot schools in incorporating global learning in daily lessons and in developing it as part of the school culture. We are therefore formulating a strategy together with the school and finalizing an agreement for the further development of the school. Exchange between the schools will be fostered, supported by a joint platform.

Global classroom
In Berlin, the global classroom is being implemented in a special-needs school. It includes exhibits from all over the world which students will learn about global contexts with, and teaching resources for various subjects and ages (aged 6-15 years), as well as cards, lexica and multimedia resources. The process of integrating global learning into the school profile is strengthened by classroom events and training. The school partnership with Senegal is to be strengthened in the process.

One-World Approach
Schools in Berlin will be supported by work with parents and neighbours in the commitment for the One World: key modules are “identity and diversity”, “our world view” and “fair trade”
