Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Do you hear that our students should have global competencies to compete with others in different countries? The rapid evolution of ICT has expedited the global interconnectedness of our society and the cross-cultural interactions among people. It has become an important agenda in school education to prepare our students to be competent in such a global society.

However, what abilities specifically should we help our students develop? How should we design our subject curricula and classroom activities? Most importantly, does it sound proper that the students learn to compete with others?

In finding the answers through this session, participants will: 

  • Understand the construct and dimensions of intercultural competence
  • Be introduced to Intercultural Virtual Exchange of Classroom Activities (IVECA) that globalizes teaching and learning in their classrooms
  • Learn a simple method to integrate their regular curricula with IVECA
  • Discover the benefits and ultimate goals of globalizing their classroom activities
  • Explore the ways to use IVECA in assessing student performances
