InterNAtionalizing Educational Practices | BRAZ-TESOL RN

Teaser - Jamylle

Abstract: The 21st Century teacher needs to be prepared to embrace interdisciplinarity, the diversity and the perspectives that rise in and outside the classroom. The 3rd Industrial Revolution in the late 90s and early 2000 has fostered a continuous process of Globalization with cheaper airline prices, an overflow of technology applied to communication and to education, and a more demanding audience of learners who no longer learn from the classroom experience only. Altogether this has been leading to a hybrid internationalization of educational, social, political, financial, and cultural practices. That means more and more individuals are traveling to and from different continents promoting an endless exchange of practices, intentionally or not. And with that flow come challenges such as working with inclusive education, diverse groups of learners, integrating technology and focusing on the learner’s needs. Collaboration, student centered practices, autonomous learning and a foreign success model, such as the Finnish Educational System (FES), might be overrated but still relevant to minimize hindrances. But the utmost challenge lies on gathering all these concepts practically and achieving educational success. The FES may steer us towards this success through schooling perspectives provided the former is adaptable to local and national needs of the latter.
