Special Guest Presenter: Sharon Davison
"Teaching the Global Goals in Kindergarten"
In this week's webinar, we are so proud to have Sharon Davison joining us as our special guest presenter sharing information, ideas, and projects that support the Sustainable Development Goals for the world. Her topic is: "Teaching the Global Goals in Kindergarten.” Although the experiences she will share are primarily related to younger students, the goals and resources she will be sharing are critical for all students and adults, and we know you are going to feel so excited and empowered after hearing Sharon share her passion for the work being done by connected educators around the world. This is relevant to teachers and educators for any age group.
In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 goals for a better world by 2030. These goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone. The Global Boals will be met if we all work together. All over the world actions are being taken to make our planet more sustainable. The #TeachSDGs movement connects global educators dedicated to responding to a call to action within education to meet the Sustainable Development Goals. They provide open and accessible resources, lessons plans, and global projects directly aligned to the Sustainable Development Goals.
Sharon will be sharing how she explores the global goals with young children. She will highlight a couple of service learning opportunities that she has explored with the global goals as a lens and the impact it has had on her classroom, students, parents and the school community.
Sharon Davison is a passionate educator who believes in creativity and innovation. She has the privilege of being a public school teacher for over 3 decades. She is committed to making a difference for her students, their families and other educators, who like herself, care and are committed to making the world better. She believes in the use of synchronous and asynchronous tools as opportunities to enhance, enrich and connect learning opportunities. Her classroom is open globally. She creates a learning culture that is not only rich in resources but opportunities. Through collaboration around a common need, we can promote positive change for the world.
