We make the foreign feel familiar
In countries across the globe there are daily reminders of the divisions between different groups of people - from racial tensions to prejudice against minorities, immigrants and refugees. Unfortunately, the explicit and implicit biases that feed such negative intergroup relations start young.
The Globe Smart Kids uniquely authentic approach to global education is designed to encourage feelings of interaction and familiarity between children, believing that they will be kinder, wiser, and happier because they know more about the globe we share.
Globally competent children have diverse friends and these friendships lead them to be more empathetic, better able to understand another’s perspective, and more likely to make decisions not influenced by explicit or implicit bias.
Our materials are offered to children worldwide, in English, French and Dutch, to use at home and in school, through multiple channels: currently iPad, iphone and internet browsers.
