Abstract

By 2040, when today's young teachers will be ending their teaching career, it is reasonable to expect those glob- al issues relating to the environment and to cultural diversity to be a major focus in education. Therefore it is relevant to help today™s students prepare to use Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to bring pupil™s respect closer for apparently ipdistantle lands and cultures. The paper draws upon extensive research across Europe in collaboration with universities and commercial organisations. This paper argues that there are three reasons to incorporate a global dimension in teacher education: L the context for education is becoming global; L ICT is being used to increase access to education on a global scale; L a global view can enhance teacher education through the provision of stimulating rich contexts for critical reflection. The paper provides and also incorporates a set of principles to inform curriculum design and illustrates ways in which teacher educators can proceed. This includes a creative project to facilitate practicing teachers use of research into ICT in education.
