The project aimed to answer the following questions:
- What exactly is meant by the global dimension?
- How best can we as geographers address it?
The activities, ideas and resources featured here support and supplement the book Geography: The global dimension (key stage 3) published by the GA in association with the DEA. It is available as a free download or can be purchased from our online shop priced £7.99/£5.99 GA members.
These materials were created during 2004/05 but remain useful for anyone wishing to find out more about the global dimension and how it fits in with KS3 geography.
11.02.10 - The Spring 2010 issue of Primary Geographer contains an article on 'Critical thinking in the context of global learning' by Hetan Shah, Chief Executive of the DEA. An accompanying article by DEA Schools Programme Manager Kate Brown asks what this understanding of critical global thinking means for teachers. Both articles can be downloaded from the Journals area.
Another article by Kate Brown, 'The benefits of global learning', was published in Sec Ed on 04.02.10 and looks at the reasons for embedding global learning across all subjects.
