Target Audience(s): educators

Short Session Description (one line): See how Knowledge to Action plans can be used to help students turn their global learning into meaningful real-world action

Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

The development of a "K2A" or Knowledge to Action plan is a powerful process through which students translate their learning about globally significant issues into advocacy and action at the local, national and global level. In this session, we will look at student work samples, unpack the key components of a K2A plan, and explore ways you can apply this method in your own classroom. Along the way, we will examine how the pedagogy behind the K2A plan can be used to foster global competency in students of all ages.
