Short Session Description (one line): 21st Century Shifts as a Basis for Global Education Curriculum
Full Session Description (as long as you would like): Many major shifts are already occurring globally. Our Global Education curriculum must include these so that students are prepared for what is occurring, and what will most likely occur in the coming decade.
Across the world there are precedents indicating significant shifts in business, healthcare, and education systems from hierarchical and exclusive to collaborative and inclusive. Open and inclusive models can already be found in "open and student centered" education," "open business models along with their inclusive global social responsibility," and "Integrated Healthcare that is patient centered and includes collaboration with a greater range of healthcare professionals." Collaboration is beginning to replace competition as people around the world see the increased benefits to all people in collaboration.
For examples and presentation of the specific precedents in education, business, and healthcare, please go to: http://21stleadership.org where, in the spirit of 21st century collaboration and openness, all the information is freely available.
Including these shifts in curriculum can lead students to what is coming for them as adults. If you have more precedents to add, these will be included in the website -- open collaboration.
