At the economic level, globalization is affecting employment and Schools will need to reconsider their mission in light of changing job markets ; new skills and the flexibility to adapt to changing job demands and, for that matter, changing jobs over a lifetime ; and dealing with an increasingly competitive international labor pool. The increasing commercialization of the school environment has become remarkably bold and explicit in this decade.
As Educators our ability to educate and prepare the world’s future leaders in politics, business, and education along with our determination to set positive examples for the value of democracy, civility, and human rights can shape the future of the world.

The most significant barriers include limited resources, language barriers, and lack of mobility of students.
New technologies provide ways to overcome the traditional barriers to global education and language learning.
