Questioning Education
DEA Questioning Education
Drawing on newly commissioned global learning research for DEA by Ipsos MORI, this discussion paper considers what can be done to ensure that global learning is embedded in all schools. Asking a set of key questions, it provokes discussion and provides analysis and ideas as to how education policy should change so that young people are properly prepared for their global future and able to thrive in the world they will inherit.
DEA Global Matters
Global Matters celebrates just some of the exciting examples of global learning going on around the country in schools, youth work and communities. The case studies show active and participatory approaches that engage learners and encourage critical thinking about a range of important topics, including global trade, environmental sustainability, race, child labour and refugees.
