Schools - Overview
Think Global works to support and develop schools' and teachers' practice on global learning, and to influence policy makers.
Putting learning in a global context involves supporting young people to make sense of their lives by understanding the global interconnections we all have. It helps pupils understand how they are affected by events around the world. It also helps them to recognise that what they do affects people and the environment in other countries.
For teachers across the UK, we run the Global Dimension Website. This is a searchable guide of over 1,000 reviewed books, films, posters and web resources which support global, intercultural and environmental understanding for all age groups and subjects.
Please see our case studies of some of the great global learning work whichis already taking place in schools.
Get involved with our work to ensure that all pupils are able to experience good lobal learning.
The Schools - background section shows some of the positive policy foundations which have been established. However, much more needs to be done. To see the policy work which we are doing and how you can support us, see the Schools - Policy section.
Much of our work is based on research and our broad network of organisations working with schools provides us with an invaluable link to global learning practice on the ground.
We also commission surveys to find out about young people's, teachers', parent's and general attitudes to and experiences of global learning.
