Though newly introduced, global education has occupied a special place in the glossary of teaching. It props up both the teachers and students to have a broad view of the problems and issues and think constructively of the future and their role in modeling it. In this respect, teachers need to consider themselves as global citizens and take all the responsibilities that accompany the phenomenon of globalism. At the same time, teachers must regard themselves as members of their community. The main characteristic of teaching in the framework of global education is the partnership between the teacher and the student which finds itself expressed in the methods and numerous interactive techniques and constitutes its content. The teachers who keep teaching by employing traditional methods find it difficult to promote the active role of the students in the classroom, see the relationship of their subject they are teaching with others, and perceive the prospective of their teaching. The philosophy of global teaching integrates exactly those elements which the traditional method lacks. The focus of the philosophy of global education is the student and teaching. These days we live in a society which is constantly becoming essentially globalized and fundamentally affected by both decisions made irrespective of our will and events that take place far from us. Consequently, we are constantly under the pressure of global, cultural, social, economic, technologic, and environmental tendencies as well as changes which come about very rapidly. Therefore, it is our duty and that of the entire society to increase students’ ability to think systematically in order that they could be able to face this ever globalizing world, think constructively of their future and the role they are to play to shape it, and learn from the past. Methodology provides students and lecturers with a global image of the teaching of science. As is known, teaching is carried out through communication. Teaching all over the world is adopting this method. Learning process becomes pleasant if better communication skills of the teacher prevail upon the inherent inertia associated with the students, while they focus upon a difficult subject. This way of teaching is increasingly being highly appraised by the world academy.
