Homework (optional): Teachers will be asked to customise a global learning lesson plan for their own class and share with colleagues and Lytfa's education team for feedback and suggestions.

Expected outcomes of the course:

Participants will be empowered to use the interactive learning resources, comprehensive teacher packs and media libraries to deliver numerous lessons to Key Stage 2 and 3 pupils. Teachers will be shown how to customise their own lesson plans quickly, by mixing and matching activities and exercises from a variety of Lyfta's suggested lessons.

The course will give teachers the tools to allow their pupils to freely explore different cultures in engaging interactive worlds, and to get pupils thinking about, understanding and discussing ideas on global citizenship.
