Toward Educating Global Citizen
In TechnoNatura several approaches were used to expose student to become global citizen
1. Expose to international event, especially on Science, Technology, Engineering and Art.
To appreciate people is to acknowledge other cultures, therefore we need to bring our students to visit different cultures, Indonesia culture is rich, it has been shaped by long interaction between original indigenous customs and multiple foreign influences. Indonesia is centrally-located along ancient trading routes between the Far East, South Asia and the Middle East resulting in many cultural practices being strongly influenced by a multitude of religions, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Islam and Christianity, all strong in the major trading cities. The result is a complex cultural mixture very different from the original indigenous cultures.
The need to understand the western society with the modern lifestyle, was fulfilled when American Embassy open @america in Jakarta. @america is a cutting-edge, 21st-century cultural center where students can explore and experience the United States, and express your thoughts and ideas about America.
- At @america, we discover state-of-the-art technology and we learn more about the western value. Through discussions, webchats, cultural performances, debates, competitions, and exhibitions, you can experience the best of America – its ideals, creativity, and diversity.
Our team also become one of the presenter @america to share our half globe journey to USA in Global Challenge to other Indonesian youngsters, to inspire them to take the bold steps to understand other cultures.
Global movement : FIRST Global Challenge
One movement that mission very much in line with Technonatra is FIRST Global. The mission of FIRST Global is to inspire science and technology leadership and innovation in young people from all nations in order to increase understanding, impress the importance of cooperation, address the world’s most pressing issues, and improve quality of life for all.
FIRST GLOBAL Challenge, initiative bringing these future STEM young leaders together in an engaging and collaborative competition that drives home the importance, excitement, and applicability of STEM education, FIRST Global inspires students to learn the skills they will need to make the discoveries their parents and grandparents would consider miracles, impossibilities, or just plain science fiction.
Its in a honour for our student and school when were invited and selected to represent Indonesia in that event,
By incorporating these approaches, Madrasah Technonatura prepare students to become global citizens who are knowledgeable, engaged, and responsible. Education is a powerful tool for creating positive change in the world, and Madrasahs have an important role to play in shaping the next generation of global citizens.
