Factfulness, Inquiry & Global Ignorance: SDG

Resources for exploring Global Contexts through #Factfulness, the Global Goals and data-driven inquiry in the MYP & DP.

Why SDG Tracker?

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs / Global Goals) are targets for global development adopted in September 2015, set to be achieved by 2030. All countries of the world have agreed to work towards achieving these goals.

The SDG-Tracker provides powerful data summaries and visualisations to help give a fact-based approach to student inquiry and action.

Do we and our learners really understand the current truth of an issue?

How can we move beyond loose tokenism into genuine awareness?

Getting Going...

Visit the SDG Tracker site and choose a goal to investigate (links below). Use the Predict-Observe-Explain routine to interact with an animated map. What has been happening across the world and in specific regions? What lines of inquiry does this generate? 

Try This...

Visit the SDG Tracker and make a connection with your curriculum. Which goal can be easily integrated into a unit you are teaching? How might the unit be enhanced with factful inquiry?


Join the #TeachSDGs communities on Twitter and Microsoft for Education to find out more about how others are putting their classrooms to work in learning about the global goals.
