Inspiring learning for a fairer future

Global Teachers Network

On Tuesday, Dec 12th we had a very positive meeting with teachers from as far away as Fort William enthusiastically sharing ideas and discussing plans for the future.

We usually have two teachers giving some form of presentation about global citizenship activities they have been involved in, and this time we had two excellent presentations from practitioners. We heard firstly from Katie Hanson, a Biology teacher at Culloden Academy, on her involvement of global citizenship education in the classroom, and her experiences on a recent trip to Rwanda with Global Learning Partnerships. We were then treated to a presentation from James Cook, QIO for the Northern Alliance, on using picture books to develop Equality, Diversity and Children's Rights across the Broad General Education (3-15).

All-in-all a very rewarding and enjoyable meeting. We are now on the look-out for volunteers to share their global citizenship activities at the next meeting in the summer term. Please get in touch if you would be interested.
