Fostering K-12 students' global competencies

    Publication year: 2018

    The environment in which children are growing up today is very different than that of previous generations. There has been tremendous innovation in how society operates, with the rapid expansion of technology, globalization of businesses, new careers and opportunities, and increasingly diverse communities. Students graduating from high school have tremendous opportunities to be personally successful, economically productive, and actively engaged. To capitalize on these opportunities however, it is critical that our education systems support students in acquiring the right competencies to navigate increasingly complex societies.
