Top 10 Places to Find Real People in Your Community to Globalize Student Learning

Name: Dr. Rita Oates

School, Library, or Organization Name: Oates Associates

Co-Presenter Name(s): none

Country from Which You Will Present: USA

Language in Which You Will Present: English

Target Audience (such as primary school teachers, high school administrators, students, etc.): Teachers, administrators, parents

Short Session Description (one line):

How to find people in your community to help advance global education locally, sharing their knowledge and experience with your students live and in person!

Full Session Description (one paragraph minimum):

In every country, people from "other places" have settled over the years. This session focuses on how you can make a "human inventory" of the resources available in your school and community who can help move global education to a tangible and local activity with much relevance and resonance for students. Tips for finding and using these human resources are shared, based on real experiences from a former PTSA president and teacher and district administrator. She brought a survivor of a Japanese internment camp to her daughter's middle school social studies class, a "liberator" of a German concentration camp to a high school class, and others to schools she worked with in Miami-Dade County, where she was the director of ed tech.

Parents and extended family members of ESL students are just one of many different groups that are rarely tapped. Peace Corps volunteers are actually have a mandate to share their experiences once they return to the U.S. Sister Cities programs span the globe, and many have a K12 component. Returned military who have served in other places, from Vietnam and South Korea to Germany and the Gulf, add real world experience and perspective in every community. Rotary Clubs around the world host exchanges for high school students and young professionals. Staff in companies, workers on farms, spouses of professors and "church ladies" may offer strong cultural ties to "other places" that can help enrich the student experience.

Come to this session prepared to explore new opportunities to enrich your classroom or school with global stories and learn some strategies of dealing with each type of group. Older students can help to make the inventory of human resources in your community. Students can also use technology for interviews, to document dances or musical performances to share the stories of these people with other students.

Hi Rita -

If accepted, you schedule yourself, so you don't need to put your availability in the proposal. And please confirm that this is not an ePals presentation. For profits need to be partners in order to present.


Thanks,

Lucy

I removed the availability comment.

This presentation is about face-to-face global education activities that are facilitated through groups such as People-to-People, Sister Cities, Rotary Youth Exchange, Peace Corps Returned Volunteers, various activities from the State Dept., etc. I believe all of these groups are nonprofits. This is NOT a technology presentation but a "local global" focus.

If you have experience with any of the groups named above (or similar ones), please let me know. I'd be happy to include a slide with your info in my session as another example or so others can contact you, if you wish. Or just share those experiences and tips/tricks here where others can read about them!

Here's the file I used in my presentation.
