Overview

We are in a state of tremendous global unrest with wars, acts of terrorism, genocide, epidemics and untold natural disasters. In some cases students are at risk as a result of safety concerns within their schools, from extremist views that discriminate against obtaining education, from societal issues that increase anxiety and depression, and even in specific cases from corruption in government that prevent students from having access to schooling.

It is through globally engaged education that we can learn of one another, attain academic excellence, improve international relationships, triumph over atrocities, and discover new potentials. A synergistic globally engaged education will allow for the working together collaboratively, cooperatively and innovatively, while still respecting diversity and humane ideologies.

Through cutting edge interdisciplinary research from psychology, neuroscience, education, leaps in the technological areas, and listening closely to the global voices we can indeed ascertain understanding, peace and sustainability.

Editorial Reviews

Deborah Meier
How refreshing to see the word global education without a focus on racing to the top, with all its built in assumptions about winners and losers. Gunzelmann has carefully and thoroughly offered us another scenario for what global eduction must mean if we are to do right for all our children.Play with it? And thank you for writing this, Betsy. Education reform has become a rhetorical exercise in nationalistic competition, even as we know that the opposite must be true!!
Diane Connell
Dr. Betsy Gunzelmann’ s newest book calls on all of us to participate in creating a paradigm shift on we view education. Educators and politicians are urged to participate in an effort to enhance our students “ global wisdom. ” Dr. Gunzelmann’ s concept of global wisdom includes teaching students to “live and interact in an increasingly global world; ” one where people from all nations work collaboratively to solve world problems in a just manner.
Jerome L. Rekart
Dr. Gunzelmann has written an important and timely text that describes not only why global education is necessary at this point in history, but the power it has to impel real change in the world. This inviting book should be considered by all educators interested in broadening the knowledge and understanding of their students in an increasingly diverse and connected world.
