The Global Education Coalition is a network of NYC-based organizations whose primary objective is to support educators in the New York metropolitan area in creating globally competent youth for tomorrow's future.
The members of GEC-NYC led a day-long professional development seminar, “Fostering Global Competency among our Students,” to both formal and non-formal educators and school administrators at Bank Street College Continuing Professional Studies on Saturday, October 26th. The GEC-NYC members provided strategies and tools to integrate global themes into the curriculum as required by the Common Core Standards and how to practically apply the concept of global competency in the classroom. Topics include conceptual frameworks on global and intercultural competencies, how to utilize cultural exchanges and technology to engage students with the world, and ways to incorporate global education into classroom and afterschool curriculum through tools, activities, and partnerships.
