Glocalization Linking the global with the Local

This workshop in both English and Arabic is for all teachers of learners from KG to Grade 12, and provides practical opportunities to understand and know how to link and apply educational resources created by teachers and locally, knowledge based entities in Qatar, with the curriculum of the school. Focus will be linking the global context of learning with the local knowledge, innovation , language, culture and heritage. There are several overarching goals for learners in this initiative. First is to nurture learners as global citizens who are connected to their own national identity. Secondly, is to equip learners with the knowledge, skills, motivation and understanding to demonstrate the importance of Glocalization as a sustainable model for learning. Third, to support learners who think globally and act locally, and who think locally and act globally. Finally, to inspire students to act in local/global sustainable ways.
