Global Kids inspired me to be action oriented in the classroom and to connect the curriculum to real-world issues. I think that our schools would benefit if Global Kids became accessible to more educators.

Global Kids' Professional Development Offerings for Individuals

Global Kids has twenty years’ experience working with New York City public schools. We provide curriculum resources and training for teachers, administrators, and youth workers, and we work directly with students in the classroom and after school. Trainings will be facilitated by Global Kids’ staff members who are highly skilled with extensive training and experience in international affairs, youth development, service learning, violence and bias prevention, and youth-created digital media.

All trainings are offered at $75 per person with a discounted rate of $50 each for two sessions or more. Trainings will take place from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm at Global Kids’ Center for Global Leadership at 137 East 25th Street, 2nd Floor, New York, NY 10010.

Developing Global Citizens
Using the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a point of reference, Global Kids will provide participants with creative tools and techniques to engage young people in examining their role in society and understanding what it means to be a global citizen in a complex, interconnected world. Educators will learn how the UDHR can be used for year-long inquiry and project-based learning that build the 21st-Century skills of young people, including critical-thinking, literacy, cross cultural collaboration, global awareness, digital media literacy and the use of technology.
Date: Thursday, October 21

Understanding Youth in the Digital Age
How do you respond when your student friends you on Facebook? How can you formalize the learning that youth experience through digital media without losing the juice? How do you support a young person to act ethically online when those social spaces are so foreign? In this training, Global Kids will introduce you to cutting edge approaches to thinking about the digital generation in terms of how they learn, the ethical issues they face, and what it all means for your ability to reach youth.
Date: Wednesday, October 27

Service Learning Strategies
Participants will explore core experiential learning techniques and popular education practices that educators can apply to differentiate instruction in their classroom, after school, or summer program and engage students with diverse learning styles. Facilitation skills and youth development strategies will be integrated into the session. All participants receive sample Global Kids curriculum and materials.

This training will equip educators with the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to introduce innovative digital media and technology tools into their curriculum and learning environments. The training will offer a hands-on introduction to the educational potential of serious gaming, social media and virtual worlds, and how they foster community, creativity, collaboration, and civic engagement. All participants will leave with a broad understanding of the educational potential presented by a range of digital media, ideas about how they can incorporate these tools into their programs, and concrete next steps for planning and implementation.
