From assessing the teacher candidates to preparing them for the standard driven curriculum, there is an increasing demand for globally connected and culturally relevant pedagogy. As the accountability of teacher education programs and the demand for globally competent teacher candidates are increasing, teachers’ performance in the classroom is under unprecedented and intensifying scrutiny. Teacher education programs seek innovative and transformative education models that implement the theory into practice while preparing teacher candidates for global economy. Educators who start their teaching often confused and puzzled by connecting their theoretical knowledge into practice as well as fulfilling the demands of the standard driven curriculum. To answer the research questions, this workshop explores how media literacy education and global competencies as well as transformative critical pedagogy frameworks are being adopted in teacher education and integrated in P20 curriculum. This workshop not only provides discussion on case studies, authentic and transformative teaching materials, assessment tools, and strategies but also outlines the transformative role of global education into teacher education curricula. This hands on workshop seeks to have an impact in education field and benefit teacher candidates, teacher educators, librarian, parents, and administrators who seek transformative and innovative strategies and tools for improving instruction, assessing students' work and for preparing new generations to be future media literate, transformative and visionary leaders, and global citizens.
