What is global education? The heart of global education is enabling young people to participate in shaping a better, shared future for the world. Global education emphasises the unity and interdependence of human society, developing a sense of self and appreciation of cultural diversity, affirmation of social justice and human rights, as well as building peace and actions for a sustainable future in different times and places. Global education promotes positive values and assists students to take responsibility for their actions and to see themselves as global citizens who can contribute to a more peaceful, just and sustainable world. Australian global educators place particular emphasis on developing relationships with our neighbours in the Asia–Pacific and Indian Ocean regions. Global Perspectives, A framework for global education in Australian schools is a concise, practical and philosophical guide to including a global perspective across the curriculum.

The Problem Dedicating works to the public domain is difficult if not impossible for those wanting to contribute their works for public use before applicable copyright or database protection terms expire.

Unesco. 50th anniversary of Nubia Campaign UNESCO, Egypt and Sudan have started commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Nubia Campaign, a defining example of international solidarity when countries understood the universal nature of heritage and the universal importance of its conservation. The Egyptian and Sudanese governments' request - in April and October 1959 respectively - for UNESCO's help to save the 3,000-year-old monuments and temples of ancient Nubia from an area that was to be flooded by the Aswan Dam marked the start of unprecedented campaign. "A moving demonstration of the miracles that can be achieved by international cooperation," in the words of the Director-General of UNESCO, Koïchiro Matsuura who sent a message to the participants of a meeting held in Egypt to commemorate the Nubia Campaign.

21st Century Assessment Assessment, in the form of examinations, has been a constant feature of education since the 18th Century. Some researchers indicate that the first printed examinations at school started in 1830 with the Sixth form at Harrow.[1, 2, 3]. For over 150 years, examinations have been our principal assessment tool and they are still important in 21st Century teaching and learning. The examination has a place in our arsenal of tools but is it the flag ship of assessment?

Simple storytelling for architects How to use the 'brief, challenges and solution' technique... If you’ve ever read a book on writing, or marketing, you’ll see a common recommendation of using storytelling to explain your “thing”. The rationale is that our brains are wired up to connect into stories, and so it allows complex ideas to be explained in a simple way. It also allows readers to empathise with our “thing”. In this post we’re going to show you how to use storytelling in your media kit, and also give you a structure for that story to make it easy to write. This storytelling text will come after your project summary (see writing your first 300 words) and it will give editors who are already interested in your project something to sink their teeth into.

In fact, a recent survey of 1,000 job seekers found that 92% of people feel interview anxiety, citing doubt over their qualifications, whether they’d be able to answer questions correctly—and even if they’d make it to the meeting on time. Frankly, this stat should come as no surprise. After all, you’re trying to build rapport with strangers in an unfamiliar place, you’re being put on the spot—and there’s a lot at stake from this one encounter. But in order to really rock that interview, you’ve got to push the fear aside and boost your confidence. And the way to accomplish that is to make sure you know not only what you should say and do—but also all the ways that you could sabotage yourself.
