Jamie Schlais Barne


Jamie Schlais Barnes’ grandfather, Phillip Morstad, said to her as a young girl, “Education is power, and you can be or do anything if you work hard enough!” These words, and the fact that a lack of financial resources kept her grandfather from attending college, are why Jamie is an advocate for educational equity and works to further develop teaching practices to meet the needs of diverse students. 

Acknowledging the demands globalization has on classrooms, Jamie founded Global Evaluations LLC, an educational consulting firm with a focus on evaluating culturally relevant, multicultural, and global educational practices. Classrooms are becoming global educational contact zones and there is an opportunity for diverse students and their teachers to learn from each other’s experiences.  Jamie has presented research or provided professional development to educators in over 10 countries. Acting as an IB psychology online and face-to-face workshop facilitator, she took time to learn about the cultures, educational structure, and pedagogical practices of participants representing over five continents.  In July 2018, Jamie joined the International Baccalaureate (IB) Organization as a Diploma Programme (DP) curriculum manager for Psychology and Creativity, Activity, and Service (CAS). During the research phase of curriculum development, she is engaging the global community in answering the question “What does it mean to be psychologically literate?” Focus group activities and discussions with DP students, teachers, and experts in the field of psychology are scheduled. Obtaining diverse perceptions of psychological literacy, appropriate for secondary school graduates, will guide the creation of the next IB DP psychology guide. The goal is to create a product honouring local practices while addressing challenges and opportunities associated with globalization. Prior to working for the IB, Jamie served 17-years with Chesterfield County Public Schools in Virginia, USA where she served as a teacher, IB DP coordinator, and evaluation specialist. As a history teacher Jamie and a colleague participated in American University’s Classroom without Borders program and hosted teachers and students from Algeria and Yeman. Later as the DP coordinator, she and the DP students hosted a teacher and students from China. While teaching DP psychology, Jamie used these experiences to challenge her students to make local/global connections to issues like stereotypes, prejudices, and biases in thinking.

Working as the school division’s evaluation specialist, Jamie collaborated with key personnel in the design, implementation, and data sharing of large research and evaluation projects. Examples include: researching student and teacher Chromebook use in secondary schools; evaluating the implementation of social emotional learning curriculum in primary schools; and auditing the 12 specialty centres on a cyclical basis.

A concept for our future: “Internationalisation at home

One does not need to be a “futurologist” to conclude that one of the great keys for the Future of Education is Internationalisation. The need for worldwide recognition of the quality of our different national Higher Education institutions increasingly demands Internationalization. Accreditation systems all over the world tend to consider this an (if not THE) condition for success. So, the motto nowadays is “Become international or perish”! The challenges of internationalization are plural, diverse and frightening, but they all involve the concept of “mobility”: geographical mobility, physical mobility, and mental mobility. The first two are closely linked to a lot of effort, a lot of time and a lot of money and obviously, if we are talking about thousands of students, impossible to achieve for everybody. Will the third one be possible without the others? The new concept of “Virtual Mobility” or “Mobility at home” (as it is termed in some languages) may add a new insight to what internalization may become in the near future. I will try to define it, analyse its implications, its contribution to the innovation of curriculum and its possible effects on the Education of the Future (and on the Future of Education). I will also point out the needs for research about the new pedagogical practices that it will undoubtedly trigger.
