What is global learning?

Global learning means students learning about the wider world. Schools use a range of terms to describe activities intended to support global learning such as development education, global citizenship, global education, intercultural education, the global dimension and education for sustainable development. These guidelines use the term global learning throughout. Drawing on our definition of global learning (see www.think-global.org.uk), a global learner is:

• Critical

• Creative

• Self aware

• Globally aware

• Open-minded

• Inquisitive

• Reflective

• Connected

• Willing to engage with global challenges

• Keen to take action for a better world
