This paper examines the concept of globalized education and the benefits of said education. The paper discusses the barriers facing students that prevent this form of education such as a lack of world exposure and the inequity of technology distribution. The paper also explores how more standardized testing and institutionalized learning inhibit global education and are a barrier for world exposure. In addition, the paper discusses the political barriers involved and addresses potential solutions to overcoming this problem.
From the Paper:One obvious problem in the area of knowledge sharing for global education is simply the fact that students may not have the opportunity to communicate with students around the country, much less around the world. In other words, they suffer from lack of exposure. Without these connections, knowledge sharing breaks down. With many American schools more segregated than they were before the Civil Rights movement, American students can easily get caught up in their own "world view" and ignore the larger picture. We need to provide more opportunities for students to "stretch" outside their own realm and learn about the global picture. Maybe this could be as simple as providing global service learning activities where students could become educated or educate themselves about particular issues. Then, they could work with others toward solutions and see that their actions can and do have impact upon the world.
