As members of a global society, young learners are increasingly culturally and linguistically diverse. While teachers value lifelong belonging and participation (Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA), 2016), little is known about how teachers’ support children’s social, cultural, and linguistic diversity in educational settings.
The empowering global learners project, partnered with teachers as researchers, to generate a contextual research-oriented, and practice-focused, program that builds their research capabilities, and supports young learners’ intercultural classroom experiences. Teacher-researchers engaged in video-stimulated participatory action research in their classrooms. The project observed classroom interactions between teachers and students, and students and their peers, to identify practices for a classroom culture of participation, communication, and belonging, elements underpinning a global perspective.
