THE DEVELOPMENT OF GLOBAL COMPETENCIES AND GLOBAL MINDEDNESS THROUGH GLOBAL EDUCATION

Linda Austin Cook

Abstract


The development of the competencies, skills, and beliefs that prepare learners for success in the globalized world is a desired outcome for educational organizations. Global education can foster the development of these competencies, skills, and beliefs. The study reported within this article focused on the global education experiences of Primary Years Program International Baccalaureate students as they collaborated to address a global issue. Through engagement in global education, the primary students developed global competencies. Teachers reported changes in their own and their students’ global mindedness beliefs, however, the quantitative findings did not show evidence of a change in student global mindedness.
