Primary and Secondary school teachers


ESSARP schools and their staff have become fully aware of the needs of the XXI learner and of the type of schooling those learners seem to require: inquiry oriented, socially contextualised schools committed to world making, concerned with critical self and social reflection apart from being concerned with the development of both the emotional and logical sides of their students and, above all, fully committed to take action.

In this presentation we will explore the XXIc school needs and the roles the teachers are expected to play to cater for those needs. We will examine three types of roles: the technician, the reflective teacher and the transformative intellectual (Kumaravadivelu, 2012) and look closely into a school project implemented at Colegio Newlands in 2018 which involved the teachers and learners in becoming ambassadors of the Global Agenda 2030 and its 17 SDGs.

UNESCO (2013) suggests that through education students need to become aware of their global citizenship condition and that global education seeks to empower those children and young adults to take active roles that will allow them to face both local and global challenges so as to become key agents in the construction of a more inclusive, sustainable, healthier, pacific and tolerant world.

So as to improve students' global competences it is important to explore and include in our projects global themes and issues that focus on human rights, the environment, justice and intercultural issues, all included in the 17 sustainable development goals
