Digital Play for Global Citizens

A new publication from the Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop and the Center for Global Education at Asia Society, Digital Play for Global Citizens, introduces educators, youth development leaders, and parents to innovative technology tools which can help children learn about, understand, and engage with our increasingly interconnected world. Divided into three parts, the guide introduces tools to: 1) help students build awareness of themselves and the world around them, 2) recognize and investigate the history, as well as the complex, systemic causes of contemporary issues ranging from economic inequality to global conflict to cultural diversity and inclusion, and 3)use digital play to explore the natural world. From exploring boundaries, borders, and geography; to developing empathy and understanding of diversity; to developing a sense of curiosity and wonder about nature; this guide introduces practical, ready-to-use resources and techniques for using digital play to promote global citizenship.
