Welcome to Inspiral Education

Equipping today’s students for tomorrow’s world

What we do

“Inspiral Education enables an international network of students to learn together to develop their global competencies and build their sense of global citizenship”

Develop global citizens and future leaders

Engage students with their own learning

Provide resources and support for teachers

Our thought-provoking programs support students to make better sense of their world by offering them the opportunity to connect with other students around the world, explore important global issues and develop the skills and knowledge they need for life and work in the 21st century.

Designed to be challenging, collaborative and enquiry-based, Inspiral programs encourage students to ask questions, explore different perspectives, express their own opinions and reflect on their learning.

About Inspiral Education

Teachers are provided with comprehensive lesson plans and training on global education and critical thinking to support the delivery of the Inspiral programs.

Inspiral Education is a team of dedicated entrepreneurs and educators on a mission to better prepare young people for an uncertain world.  Our programs improve their global competencies and sense of global citizenship by connecting students to learn and make sense of their world together.

​

We are supported by the Development Education Research Centre at UCL’s Institute of Education.  We’ve spent that last two years researching and experimenting with social learning and global education, and have refined our investigations with the guidance of the UCL Knowledge Lab’s EDUCATE Program.

OUR PROGRAMS

FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION

Six week program

Suitable for students aged 11-14 years old

Developed with support from UCL’s Institute of Education

Freedom of Expression is defined as the right to express one’s ideas and opinions freely through speech, writing, and other forms of communication such as art and music.

​

Our first program explores global, local, individual and historical perspectives on Freedom of Expression. Students work collaboratively in class and as part of global teams. Each week they focus on a different aspect of Freedom of Expression, including the Human Right to Expression, expression online, fake news and media bias, and examine the attitudes, policies and laws in their own and other countries. A range of online and in-class activities encourage students to express their own opinions, think critically and engage with perspectives different to their own.

HUMAN MIGRATION

Six week program

Suitable for students aged 12-14 years old

From the earliest human migration out of East Africa through to the current flow of people into Europe, people embark on these journeys for many different reasons but what they share is a desire for a better life.

​

Over this challenging six-week program, students will explore what motivates migration, the social and economic benefits and challenges, and the laws that govern the movement of people. They will assess the facts and figures alongside real-life stories of young migrants and their families. Working together in class and in global teams, students will have the opportunity to engage with different perspectives through a series of interactive activities. They will look at historical and current situations, and consider the role of migration in their own lives and communities.
