Full Session Description:
This session is brought to GEC by the original teachers, Julie Lindsay and Vicki Davis, who flattened their classroom walls way back in 2006 using Web 2.0 and other emerging technologies. In January 2012 their book, 'Flattening Classrooms. Engaging Minds' has emerged as not just a pedagogical way forward for teaching and learning, but as a journey and a collection of stories from educators in many parts of the world who have witnessed and directed the powerful outcomes of collaborating beyond the classroom walls. The learning legacies from connecting with real world topics and real people have propelled teachers involved with Flat Classroom projects to innovative heights.
You are invited to join co-founders, Julie and Vicki, along with other global collaborative teachers who are out there redesigning curriculum to go 'beyond the wow' to hear stories about strategies, challenges, opportunities, and successes that emerge through global interactions. Hear about enlightened digital citizenship ideas and realities as well as how teachers in K-12 implement and sustain a flattened classroom within their school.
