Abstract

This paper provides both theoretical underpinnings and practical examples of designing and implementing “thinking curriculum” for the “global classroom.” We argue that teaching and learning in the global classroom call for (1) thinking about the curriculum at a deeper level toward (2) implementing collaborative learning projects that count for multicultural and multilingual online learning environments. We use the term “thinking curriculum” to capture our proposition that teaching and learning are always concept and assessment based. We discuss examples of two thinking tools, concept mapping and V diagramming, to illustrate how these tools could help teachers think and communicate about the whole curricular process in a scientific way at large. In the second part of the paper, we bring examples of some collaborative learning projects that were implemented in the global classroom.
