What We Are Learning

We are strongly committed to collaborating and strengthening the field through efforts with key partners. The efforts below are just a few of the many resources we have codeveloped to integrate global competence and to highlight exceptional practice.

Interested in integrating global understanding into your school and district and don't know where to begin? Here is a list of resources organized by type. Here is a resource list organized by state.

Exploring International and Intercultural Understanding through Global Literature

Longview Foundation thumbnail.jpgA new guide, Exploring International and Intercultural Understanding through Global Literature, provides examples of how K-12 teachers worked together in study groups to integrate global children's and adolescent literature in their schools. The guide includes links to teacher vignettes that provide rich details of classroom experiences and books that encourage global perspectives along with structures for teacher study groups.

Global Certificates and Diplomas
Certs Logo.jpgThe global education certificate is a distinction awarded by a school, district, or state to recognize graduates who have demonstrated that they have knowledge and skills needed in an interconnected world.

Growing diversity and a global economy are demanding our graduates have a new set of skills. Certificates go beyond grades and test scores to demonstrate a young person’s readiness for a global future. Longview recently collaborated with Asia Society and members of the States Network to create a new online resource to better understand how states, districts and schools are using distinctions to enhance global understanding.

Mapping the Nation

Mapping the nation

Mapping the Nation is an interactive map that pulls together demographic, economic, and education indicators — nearly one million data points — to show that the United States is a truly global nation.Working with Asia Society, SAS Statistical Software and the States Network, Longview co-sponsored and managed the collecting, reporting and analysis of almost 1 million data points in education, demographic and economic inputs and outputs. This online resource also includes state summaries, infographics, analyses, policy and teacher tools, and recommendations

This paper offers insight and examples from community and technical colleges committed to this charge. The examples in this paper are intended to support community and technical colleges and their faculty as they seek to integrate global competence into existing CTE course content to lead future generations of students into twenty-first-century careers.
