Globalization’s first impact was on economy. It very soon also had its  impact on education. One of the major impact being that classrooms expanded. They were no longer restricted by four walls anymore. The accessibility to knowledge increased for both the student and the teachers. With this accessibility came the need to develop the ability to explore, understand, curate, and apply what is read. The need to develop these skills became urgent.

Children no longer just experience one culture but are being impacted by cultural globalization. The need to help them understand not only their own culture but the different cultures they experience is important for them as they develop their own identity. Important, as they will not only travel across the world as tourists but may make that journey as students for higher education.
