What is the most effective way of promoting an interest in different cultures

An important aspect of learning is the ability to understand and appreciate other cultures.

Here are some reasons why children should be encouraged to learn about different cultures:

Firstly, other cultures are interesting. It is stimulating to learn about those who are different from you.

Knowledge of other cultures kindles the mind. Learning about other cultures is an interesting way to challenge your thought processes and expand the way you process information.

Learning about other cultures fosters understanding. Many of the problems we have in this world are due to misunderstandings. When you learn about another culture, and see why others do the things they do, it’s easier to understand them.

When you learn about other cultures, you learn that there is more than one approach to life. Perhaps the cultural heritage of someone else can add another dimension to your life.

Being able to tolerate others, and not berate them because of their differences is not only a big part of living in a global community, but it is also the mark of a well-rounded person. Travel enables the meeting and learning about other cultures and customs leading to a richer experience.

Unfortunately, it is not every child who will have the opportunity to travel at a very young age.

Thus, the question arises: how can we introduce pupils to a different culture?

Reading is an opportunity to learn about other cultures.

A fun way to be introduced to a different culture is through the Inca Book Series.

Making students more engaged

Research suggests that actively engaged students do best at school.  But how do we encourage students to become more engaged?

Engagement in terms of schooling is defined as the personal ingredient that actively helps individual students reach their full potential.  Put simply, without engagement it is harder for students to make the most of their talents and their opportunities.

In this regard the results of The Gallup® Student Poll make interesting reading.  For this survey has, for many years, been measuring the levels of student engagement, a measure which relates to involvement in and enthusiasm for school.

This survey includes amongst its findings the fact that engaged students are over four times as likely as their actively disengaged peers to be hopeful about the future.

Which raises an interesting point.  A realistically hopeful person is quite obviously more likely to succeed in any quest than a person who travels with no hope of success.

Thus, if engagement is a clear measure of hope for the future, how do we ensure that our students are “engaged” with school life rather than be found in Gallup’s alternative categories of “not engaged” and “actively disengaged.”

One possible solution is to take one’s students who appear from everyday observation to be “not engaged” or “actively disengaged” and help them to understand that, despite their current vision of school, they do have a number of positive attributes and opportunities.

This interesting journey towards a different view of life is made available by GetSet from Belbin; a questionnaire-based way of helping students find out about their own strengths and talents.  Something that can help them find a more positive expression of who and what they are – and indeed what they could become in the future.

To help you see the value that can be gained from this approach, we are very happy to offer you or one of your students the chance to take the GetSet questionnaire yourself at no cost or obligation.
