It's Computer Science Education Week and part of this should be exploring the fact that the world, and work force, are globally-connected and cross-cultural.

You can find some programs and resources that help to Educate Global Citizens here at Pearson Labs' site: http://labs.pearson.com/educating-global-citizens-theres-an-app-for-that/
