Are You Teaching Global Citizens?

At the ECIS Conference, I had the opportunity to see a great variety of speakers.  One of the most controversial speakers was Chadran Nair.  Chadran Nair is the founder of a think tank called Global Institute for Tomorrow, which helps people understand the impacts – good and bad – of globalization. He spoke for us about some of the issues facing Asia today.  He believes our schools are not teaching students to be global citizens.  Do you think your school is creating global citizens?  Should they be?  How do we go about creating global citizens?  Let’s start a global discussion about it!

What makes a global citizen?
