Full Session Description:
From Abu Dhabi, to Japan to Arizona, a growing number of educators are joining the P2PU School of Education. The School of Ed brings the model of open, community-based peer learning to professional development for K-12 teachers. It is about hands-on learning driven by each educator's particular needs and classroom situations. It's about connecting, collaborating, and creating, not just reading or studying, on topics such as OER, Social Media for Deeper Learning, Differentiated Instruction and Writing. In this session participants will learn about P2PU, case studies of global collaborations via P2PU, our initial impact and how to get involved.
The Peer 2 Peer University is a grassroots open education project that organizes learning outside of institutional walls and gives learners recognition for their achievements. P2PU creates a model for lifelong learning alongside traditional formal higher education. Leveraging the Internet and educational materials openly available online, P2PU enables high-quality low-cost education opportunities. P2PU – learning for everyone, by everyone about almost everything.
