eThe article Role of Global Citizens in Today’s World was very insightful and gave a very unique perspective on growing up in Ireland. The article was very thought provoking. Ireland has gone under huge change since I was in primary school in a small school in Roscommon where one child in a class of thirty was not Irish. I didn’t ever consider as a child how difficult it may have been for that particular child. Thankfully our society is so much more diverse now and multicultural. I know teach in a rural school with a variety of nationalities and different cultures. I think it is so important we teach children about global citizenship in order to foster understanding and acceptance of different cultures with schools and in society in general. I hope to bring to the attention of my colleagues of the resources outlined in this module when planning for development education in our school.
