WHAT IS GLOBAL EDUCATION?
This introductory video my colleagues and I created during our Teachers for Global Classrooms fellowship provides a brief introduction to Global Education and its importance.
GLBOAL ED IN MATH AND SCIENCE
What does Global Education look like in Math & Science? I explore this question in the following work-in-progress presentation. Once finalized and formally presented, I will replace this video with a recording of my presentation. The first scheduled presentation will be at the 2017 MassCUE Conference in October.
TEACHING RESOURCES FOR GLOBAL EDUCATION
I've collected a range of resources useful for integrating global education into classroom practice. Please let me know if you find them useful or if you have any suggestions! (Visit the About Greg page to get in touch with me.)
The annotated "thinglink" image below contains a bevy of information, links, and resources related to the Westwood Public Schools' educational technology program. My colleagues at WPS can use this as a launch point for exploring the edtech resources and professional development available in the district, or can reach out to your building's instructional technology coaches (for some of you, that's me!)
EDTECH TOOLS FOR GLOBAL ED
Below are some of my favorite EdTech tools, presented here with at least one way you might use the tool to support Global Education in your classroom. Every one of them is COMPLETELY FREE (or provides a quality free version within a freemium model.) Please let me know if you find them useful, if you need more information, or if you have any suggestions! (Visit the About Greg page to get in touch with me.)

I've collected a number of additional Global Education-related resources below. I hope you find them useful as you take a deeper dive into incorporating Global Education into your practice.
The Teach section of my Global Education Guide includes an introduction to Global Education, information regarding Global Ed's place in science and math education, numerous teaching resources and lesson plans, and links to a variety of educational technology tools that can serve Global Ed.
