Can we /should we engage with both these approaches to global learning?

Global learning
Adapting to globalisation
Preparing citizens to make the most of the global economy they will work in (e.g. being able to do business in the global market)
Developing skills for living in a globalised world (e.g. using the latest communication technologies, speaking more than one language)

Global learning
Contesting globalisation (‘another world is possible’ motto)
Preparing citizens to question the deeply unequal and unsustainable world in which we live
Developing skills for analysing local and global issues (e.g. critical thinking) and for taking responsible action to make the world a better place

What do you think the key benefits of Development Education Global Learning are for schools, teachers and pupils?
