The Globaleyes project introduces the topic of globalisation and demonstrates how this phenomenon is changing our world and highlights the exciting implications it has for your students.
Aimed primarily at Key Stage 3 students, Globaleyes is based on young people's real experiences and presented via social networking pages – a subject close to most students’ hearts.
Outcomes and resources
For three years this inspiring programme gave talented 18 to 19-year-olds the chance to visit countries with major emerging economies, Brazil, India or China. They then returned home and shared what they had learnt with young people in the wider community.
For Globaleyes, nine of these young people have created 'profile pages' containing videos, blogs, pictures and postings specially designed to help you run six interactive lessons.
The project was funded by the Department for Education and has its origins in the Global Fellowship programme, managed by the British Council.
- Curriculum - Social studies, citizenship, geography, careers and business studies.
- Skills - Team working, independent enquiry, self-management, reﬂective learning, effective participation, creative thinking.
- Cultures - Students will learn that by thinking globally they can realise dreams and aspirations more completely and help others to do the same; contributing to the economic and cultural vibrancy in the world through their future work and lifestyle.
