Badging is a key component of Global Gateway, VIFs integrated online program of professional development, classroom resources and collaborative community for educators. Global Gateway builds on a professional development sequence that uses a project-based inquiry model to train teachers to infuse global perspectives, critical thinking, innovation and technology into their classroom instruction. VIF's Global Schools Network will provide Global-Ready Teacher Designation to educators who complete the training and demonstrate integration of global content and activity into their core instruction.
