Prepare your students for the globalized world!

In the new global economy, the jobs that exist now might not exist by the time today's students enter the workplace. To succeed in this ever-changing world, students need to be able to think like entrepreneurs: resourceful, flexible, creative, and global.

Researcher and Professor Yong Zhao unlocks the secrets to cultivating independent thinkers who are willing and able to use their learning differently to create jobs and contribute positively to the globalized society. World Class Learners presents concepts that teachers, administrators and even parents can implement immediately, including how to:

  • Understand the entrepreneurial spirit and harness it
  • Foster student autonomy and leadership
  • Champion inventive learners with necessary resources
  • Develop global partners and resources

With the liberty to make meaningful decisions and explore nontraditional learning opportunities, today’s students will develop into tomorrow's global entrepreneurs.
