Exploring the Global Dimension to Physical Education
This leaflet explores what the global dimension means for Physical Education (PE) in the National Curriculum (England, Wales, and Northern Ireland). The guidelines provided may act as useful pointers for integrating a global dimension into PE in Irish schools. The leaflet shows how each of eight key concepts of the global dimension - Global Citizenship, Interdependence, Social Justice, Human Rights, Conflict Resolution, Diversity, Sustainable Development and Values & Perceptions - relate to PE. The leaflet also includes a useful set of examples of classroom activities showing ways in which students can explore the global dimension to PE.
