A basic strategy used when designing programs for students with exceptionalities is to provide them with appropriate challenges. Much attention is paid to challenges in the areas of mathematics and logic, music or sport. The same cannot be said for intrapersonal and interpersonal intelligences. However, to develop more 'balanced' individuals, who can prosper in an increasingly diverse and globalized world, we need to pay more attention to these. Global learning, with its emphasis on cross-cultural communication and collaborative learning goals in and ICT-based learning environment, can serve as a tool to develop them, along with others that are associated with different topic areas. This can also help meet standards in some states and school districts. We present an example of global learning in K-12 and some lessons learned
