Abstract

According to the International Baccalaureate (IB), the more interwoven global society becomes, the more internationally minded we are all likely to be. International mindedness (IM), however, can pose a distinct challenge for educators in terms of both practicality and meaning. This chapter presents research into the articulation and implementation of IM in an IB school. Through a constructivist grounded theory methodology, the researcher presents analysis resulting in five categories: scepticism, connection, authentication, long-term thinking, and empathy (SCALE). As well as scaffolding a pathway toward a concrete IM, SCALE offers an innovative approach to interrelation and interculturalism in schools. The findings presented in this chapter will interest those seeking an active IM that has a tangible benefit for teachers and students alike.
