This webinar will introduce three Stanford-designed online courses for high school students in the United States that leverage digital learning to develop global competence and diverse perspectives. The focus will be driven by the following essential question: how do we cultivate global citizens through digital learning? Our objectives are to introduce teachers and students to innovative online courses—the Reischauer Scholars Program, Sejong Korean Scholars Program, and China Scholars Program—that connect high school students in the United States to content on Japan, Korea, and China, respectively.
Participants will learn about how the Stanford Program on International and Cross-Cultural Education (SPICE) engages students using synchronous and asynchronous online technologies to enhance the development of cross-cultural knowledge, empathy, and understanding. We will explore the importance of leveraging technology to build an inclusive environment for sharing diverse perspectives and ideas within an online learning community, and teach strategies for actively engaging students in an online classroom. Participants will also learn about building global networks of students with an interest in developing mutual understanding and connections across borders through digital learning.
