At TakingITGlobal for Educators (TIGed), we empower classrooms to understand and act collaboratively on the world's greatest challenges.
We do this by supporting educators to utilize technology to create transformative learning experiences for their students. Through this work, classrooms everywhere become actively engaged and connected in shaping a more inclusive, peaceful, and sustainable world.
At TIGed, we believe that future friendly schools prepare students for the world by utilizing technology to engage them as learners and leaders in three key areas:
An increasingly connected future requires students to understand other people and places. Cultivating global citizenship means helping students to understand their rights and responsibilities in the face of international challenges that know no borders.
From climate change to deforestation, the future of the planet rests on students developing a sense of respect and responsibility for the world they will inherit.
To cultivate leaders of tomorrow, students must have a voice in their learning today. Valuing and incorporating student voice in classrooms and schools ensures that education is more engaging and relevant to 21st century learners.
