- About Deakin
Students in Malaysia, Denmark and Australia are studying to become teachers. In a world where students have access to virtual connected communities there are opportunities to explore what it means to teach in a world now that is global in outlook and influences. This project facilitates opportunities for students through a Deakin ITL supported social software to communicate across Europe, Asia and Australia.
The focus questionfor this research is 'how am I a global teacher?' In what ways has the community of learners across three continents contributed and expnaded my notions of both the world and to being a global teacher. Particular concepts of citizenship and globalisation will be compared and contrasted as a way of expanding notions of both citizenship and globalisation.
The aims of this research are to:
The significance of this research is: its span over three continents; extension of existing collaborative partnerships; proposal for new ways of thinking about global teaching; enrichment of the student experience at Deakin and; to build knowledge through interactive pedagogies.
