Transforming learning through global collaboration
"Is it possible to have an excellent education without global collaboration? Why or why not?"
I believe it is very possible to have an excellent education without global collaboration. My parents and grandparents, etc. had wonderful educations without the use of global collaboration. I think that the information provided to students in their native languages can be a sufficient education because that used to be all anyone had. The use of the internet and technology has greatly changed the definition of education. Because we are capable of learning through people and situations on the other side of the world does not lessen the fact that the education received solely from this country is still incredible. However, I believe that the education that can be received through the use of global collaboration benefits the learner in many different aspects. The learner is not only able to study and learn information from their native language/home country, they are able to expand their knowledge by learning about people and situations that are completely different from them.
I agree with you, we can have excellent education without global collaboration.
I definitely feel that global collaboration deepens the education experience of each student. We have had some great leaders, Nobel Prize winners, etc., that have shown us that you can have an excellent education without global collaboration. However, I believe that the education through the use of global collaboration benefits the not only the student, but all of us if done correctly.
