This is a pedagogical guidance on global citizenship with 3 major outcomes: Education,<br>Defense and Trade. (Taylor, 1997). It is the prerogative of the international community to clarify the conceptual underpinnings of global citizenship and provide<br>policy and programmatic directions, this paper which is to a large extent conceptual and directive in nature has been developed in response after deeply studying the needs and demands of and on integrating global citizenship in most of the active countries in the world. It presents suggestions for translating global citizenship education concepts into practical and age specific topics learning objectives in a way that follows principles of adaptation in local contexts.It is intended as a resource for educators, curriculum developers, trainers as well as policy-makers, but it will also be useful for other education stakeholders working in non-formal and informal settings. Global citizenship encompasses a sense of belonging to whole humanity and common mankind. It emphasizes political, economic, social and cultural interdependency and interconnectedness between the local, the national and the global. Growing interest in global citizenship has resulted in an increased attention towards global dimension of citizenship, education, policy, curricula, teaching and learningThey can serve as the basis for defining global citizenship goals, learning objectives and competencies, as well as priorities for assessing and evaluating learning. These core conceptual dimensions are based on three domains of learning: cognitive, socio-emotional intelligence and global citizenship education (Freud, 1905).</p> Uchit Kapoor, Robert Seinfield Copyright (c) 2019 Mon, 01 Apr 2019 00:00:00 +0530 Branding in the Online Space: The Emerging Frontier of New-Age Marketing <p>Technology is proving to be both an enabler and a disabler as far as meaningful and effective brand experience is concerned. As humankind continues to march towards an elusive and illusive utopia of technological advancement, the personal touch of the brand experience is fast becoming a thing of the past. <br>While it cannot be denied that the modern methods of marketing are leaving no stone unturned in ‘connecting’ with the customer, but, ironically enough, it is the ‘customer connect’ itself, which is getting lost in the process. Modern marketing, in general, and its digital avatar, in particular, are creating what can be called an ‘imaginary intimacy’ with the customer. The poor Alice-like customer is being led into a Wonderland of false promises. The clueless customer is being hoodwinked into believing that the gadget on his palm or his lap or his desk is the repository of remedies for all maladies. <br>The biggest demerit of the digital revolution in marketing is that it has reduced consumer behaviour to a set of split-second reflex actions. The ‘thinking consumer’ is an endangered species now. This is a casualty of phenomenal proportions, which the marketer will realize to his detriment in the long run.</p> Deepti Sinha, Sachin Sinha Copyright (c) 2019 Journal of Technology Management for Growing Economies Mon, 01 Apr 2019 00:00:00 +0530 A Study on factors influencing Consumers Behavior while availing Hospitality services <p>Consumer behavior (CB) involves acts, attitudes, ideas or experiences that fulfill the patron's wishes and expectations (Solomon, 1996).

The data used in this work is the all-India CPI data for the period January 2013 - April 2018. SPSS Expert Modeler method has been used to fit the models and analyzing the data.</p> Chaitanya Singla, Pradeepta Kumar Sarangi, Sunny Singh, Ashok Kumar Sahoo Copyright (c) 2019 Journal of Technology Management for Growing Economies Mon, 01 Apr 2019 00:00:00 +0530
