The paper “The Role of Global Citizens in Today’s World” (Ehigie, 2021) emphasises the importance of development education.
As a teacher, I see its value in promoting global citizenship. Development education integrates diverse perspectives, global issues, and cross-cultural understanding, equipping students with skills and values for an interconnected world.
I like to create an inclusive classroom environment that encourages critical thinking and empathy. I make an effort to work with colleagues on workshops and professional development to share strategies and resources. As a staff, we inspire fellow educators to plan development education activities throughout our school, empowering the next generation to be compassionate global citizens who make positive contributions in our changing society.
