<http://languagemagazine.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/OT-Generation-Study-Abroad-graphic-001-high-res.jpg>Today,
the Institute of International Education (IIE) is officially launching a
new campaign to recruit 1,000 K-12 teachers to join Generation Study
Abroad, a five-year initiative to double the number of U.S. college
students studying abroad.

According to the Institute, “Teachers are powerful motivators when it comes
to encouraging students to pursue any and all types of global study, from
classroom projects in elementary school to study abroad programs in
college. They are uniquely positioned to inspire curiosity about the world
by teaching all subjects through a global lens, as well as incorporating
international content into their lesson plans, language learning, and
exchange programs.”

By joining IIE Generation Study Abroad, teachers will join a national
movement to globalize the K-12 classroom and will gain access to[image:

and networking opportunities as well as resources to enhance instruction.
To achieve their goal of doubling study abroad by the end of the decade,
the IIE believes it is essential to work with teachers at the K-12 level
and support them in building a pipeline of students ready to undertake
international experiences in college. The earlier students are exposed to
foreign cultures, languages, and international current events, the better.
