Guest Researcher on Mountain View Campus

We have been honored to have Simona Szakács Behling, a researcher from the Georg Eckert Institute for International Textbook Research.

Dr. Szakács is here to collect data for a larger GlobalDAS research project comparing Deutsche Auslandsschulen from around the World.

GISSV is proud to be one of seven schools worldwide that were chosen to participate in this project which specifically looks at global citizenship education practices and the use of digital media in international schools.

Dr. Szakács has been observing classes, as well as interviewing both teachers and students. She was impressed with what she saw, especially all the ongoing projects and has asked GISSV to participate in a special video to celebrate the 50th anniversary of ZfA (Zentralstelle für das Auslandsschulwesen). We are excited to have this wonderful opportunity!

We have enjoyed having Dr. Szakács here at GISSV and wish her a safe journey back home to Germany!
