Globalization; the term globalization, according to the Turkish Language Association dictionary, means comprehensive, wholesale, and global. This word has been borrowed from French into our language. Globalization refers to the connections between countries. According to the Turkish Language Association dictionary, globalization is synonymous with 'küreselleşme,' which means globalization in English.
This word is used to describe and generalize situations that occur worldwide. The term globalization or küreselleşme describes the period of international integration and rapid global dissemination of cultures, ideas, and products. This word is related to international relations. The history of the phenomenon of globalization, which began to be felt in the early 20th century, dates back to the 16th century when Magellan circumnavigated the world. Additionally, this concept also implies a process of international unity and communication resulting from the mutual interaction of education and learning models, cultures, and consequently worldviews.
The goal of this new world order, which will be realized through digital technology, is to create positive rational hopes for the future in individuals. Especially with the development of computer and internet technologies, interaction between individuals and societies worldwide has reached an advanced level. Previously unfamiliar lifestyles, attitudes, and behaviors among individuals and societies now lead to the emergence of a common structure based on shared perceptions, understanding, and tolerance, particularly in areas such as different tastes and interests. This situation inevitably contributes to the development of education concepts and contemporary learning models, particularly in developing countries, and thus adds a global dimension to education and teaching models and methods.
The purpose of this study is to define the concept of globalization and establish the relationship between the phenomenon of globalization and the Constructivist Learning model, which is one of the increasingly popular learning models used in education. In this research, which was conducted using the descriptive case study technique with explanatory content, information obtained through scanning was evaluated, interpreted, and presented to the readers.
