Bilingual, Multilingual, and Multicultural Education
As the world is becoming increasingly flat, it has become important for educators to prepare students to understand global perspectives and engage with people from countries and cultures around the world. Although there is no question as to the importance of global education to meet with the demands of a flat world, what internationalization and globalization mean in the classroom is still an area that is met with some level of uncertainty. However, clarity around language and instructional objectives is essential if educators are to ensure that K-12 students learn what they intend. This study explores some of the ways in which teachers, students and principals define this complex notion of global education.
