GLOBAL CONNECTIONS


INTERNATIONAL MINDEDNESS IN THE IB

Education for international mindedness values the world as the broadest context for learning, develops conceptual understanding across a range of subjects and offers opportunities to inquire, act and reflect.

 Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by

demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat,

worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if

we try and understand each other, we may even

become friends. 

Maya Angelou
