Make the foreign feel familiar

aka One Globe Kids   |   New York City, NY   |  www.globesmartkids.org

Mission

The Globe Smart Kids mission is to make the foreign feel familiar to children worldwide. We fight prejudice in the formative years of early childhood using visual stories that give children a positive experience outside their familiar bubbles. We want children to grow up feeling safe, happy and excited about interacting with diverse people and in diverse contexts. Globe Smart Kids translates academic research on intergroup contact into engaging, practical, scalable education for students 4 – 10 years and uses the latest technology to do so.

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Globe Smart Kids fights the prejudice and implicit bias that begins in early childhood and leads children and eventually adults to self-segregate, reducing their close interaction with those from other groups and causing them to favor those in their own groups.

If not addressed, the biases developed in early childhood will influence choices throughout their lifetime: whom to befriend, whom to help, whom to trust, whom to hire, whom to elect. In adulthood, amplified by economic and security concerns, these biases can feed division, hatred and persistent inequality.

When people don't have close friends from other “groups" (social, economic, religious, racial, cultural, political, etc.) they are easily influenced by stereotypes, and this is reflected in their behavior. Even when they do not see themselves as discriminatory, this lack of close interaction inhibits them from recognizing their implicit biases.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We're using intergroup contact science to create practical, scalable tools that encourage cross-group friendship, inclusion and unity beginning in early childhood. We want to help children around the world to grow up with diverse friends.

Globe Smart Kids seizes the window of opportunity offered by early childhood to counter negative biases, transforming how children perceive and interact with the diverse world around them. Our first project is the One Globe Kids virtual library of global friends, which is a practical application of intergroup contact theory for children 4 - 10 years old. One Globe Kids targets young children because it is during these formative years that children begin to demonstrate an implicit preference for those in their own groups and against those in other groups. This tool makes the foreign feel familiar and lays the groundwork for emotional connections outside a child's own groups. Using technology enables it to create a cross-group friendship experience, regardless of the homogeneity of the context in which it is used. The One Globe Kids friends library is available through iOS apps and an online platform and includes the interactive and real stories of ten global “friends" aged six-eight years from Haiti, Indonesia, Israel, The Netherlands, Burundi and New York City. Each friend's story was created in collaboration with her/his family on location in her/his country and is designed around friendship principles that encourage children to see what they have in common with children everywhere. We are currently developing a K-2 ELA curriculum which will make enable teachers to teach cultural openness while meeting English-language standards.

Globe Smart Kids is a knowledge broker, bridging the gap between academic research and practical implementation. In addition to working closely with elementary education stakeholders, it interacts regularly with a wide range of organizations and individuals working in global education, intergroup contact, diversity, and technology.

Globe Smart Kids has advocated introducing global perspectives beginning in early childhood at nine conferences in the last two years, including a TEDx talk titled “How a Child's Imagination can Fight Prejudice."

One Globe Kids has over 85K+ downloads around the world. We have established relationships with experts in intergroup contact theory and are collaborating with researchers in the UK, France, Belgium, and The Netherlands to better understand how to encourage cross-group friendship in children and the impact this has on their behavior. In 2017-2018 we added a Common Core Standards-aligned K-2 curriculum for One Globe Kids to encourage mutual liking and cross-group friendship among America's youngest learners while teaching essential ELA standards. With the support of Teachers Pay Teachers, an anti-racism unit was added in 2020. Funding is secured to offer all stories in Spanish in 2021, reaching more students in school in the USA and beyond.
Through early and positive intergroup contact, we stimulate the cultural openness needed to become true global citizens.
