Defining international mindedness

Defining international-mindedness

Across the world today you’ll find schools, both international and increasingly in national systems too, that seek as part of their mission, to help children become internationally-minded. But what does it actually mean?

As yet, there is no single commonly agreed definition.To some, it may be defined around themes such as securing peace and eradicating poverty, whilst others may see it from a more environmental perspective.

What does it mean to be internationally minded how did you define internationally minded

The term international is made up of both inter and national. International understanding does not replace a sense of nationhood with something “bigger” and “better,” but rather uses and builds on a sense of one's own national identity to understand and work with the national identities experienced and felt by others. We can, at the same time, be Californian and American, British and European, Nigerian and African, citizens of a country and of the world. These are complementary, not opposing, concepts.

As someone wise said

As someone wise said

  • “To be international minded is to realise that an opposing and sometimes offensive viewpoint, could be right”.

Reason for international mindedness

Reason for International Mindedness

  • Globalisation

  • Cross-world Issues

  • The development of self

    • “No matter how rich it may be, no culture embodies all that is valuable in human life an develops the full range of human possibilities. Different cultures thus correct and complement each other, expand each other’s horizons of thought and alert each other to new forms of fulfilment. In this way, cultural diversity is an important constituent of self making and human freedom”, Derek Pigrum

Ibo s international mindedness

IBO’s International Mindedness

“aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.”

International education offers students the possibility of “discussing major world issues and knowing they can solve problems through cooperation at the local, national, and international level” (George Walker, director eneral emiritus of IBO 2002, p. 20-23).

Ibo s international mindedness1

IBO’s International Mindedness

There must be “a close alignment between the educational beliefs and values of the school and those of the IBO, promoting international mindedness in the minds of adults and students in the school community.”

The school must not only value international mindedness in theory, it must also actively foster it by providing students with rich opportunities to learn about world issues and to get involved in activities that encourage responsible citizenship. Furthermore, all members of the school community must find ways to value the school’s own diversity and make the students aware of the diversity of the world outside of their school.

Suggestion 1

Suggestion 1

And now for the news…you come in the morning, time for register and all the other start-to-the-day duties. How on earth can you bring international learning into this? Well, whilst you’re busy with the admin, let the class listen to the daily children’s news podcast from the BBC world service. The 3 to 4 minute podcast covers the main stories of the day, and is bound to lead to great discussions and debates afterwards.

Maps, maps and more maps…does your classroom environment reflect the world? Maps are a brilliant way to help children begin to ‘see’ the world and from a range of perspectives.
