The new Global Wisconsin online video series and website provide school district administrators, school board members, teachers and students with Wisconsin-based international education resources. Produced by the Educational Communications Board (ECB) and the Department of Public Instruction (DPI), Global Wisconsin showcases the very best examples of international education from across the state of Wisconsin. Designed to encourage school districts to develop programs focused on the importance of understanding cultural differences and issues, and the impact it will have on students’ future success—Global Wisconsin makes the case that international education is both essential to students and easily integrated into current teaching practices. In addition to nine short documentaries, Global Wisconsin’s Valuing International Education provides testimonials from education, business, and community leaders highlighting the growing need to engage the international community.
