Listen: Students Are Taking A Global Perspective

Technology is helping bridge the gap between people all around the work. However, our students could suffer if we don’t utilize the tools to teach them how to think as global citizens in the future. In an article written back Jack Davern for Education Week, he said, “Only one in five K-12 students in the United States studies a foreign language, according to a 2017 study by the American Councils for International Education.And though teaching a foreign language is required in 11 states, no more than 11 percent of all foreign-language programs employ the kind of immersion that produces fluent graduates.” The solution is to integrate technology into the classroom.

Allowing students to interact with people all over the world on apps like Skype and Google Hangout give them a better understanding of the world around them and could lead to a brighter future.
