Values and perceptions
Uncertainty and precaution
The impact of a study visit course on teachers’ knowledge of sustainable development and global partnerships.
I have new perspectives on some things which have changed the way I view the world and which strongly influence my behaviour and teaching.
… I read it and I thought this teacher has actually got at least six children in her class who are from Somalia so how were they thinking about their own country now? … It’s giving children a very skewed world view which we shouldn’t really be doing. We should be giving children the skills with which to make their own world view.
