Proposal for GEC session: "Authentic Global Collaboration Through Writing"

Your Name and Title: Robert Sbaglia


School, Library, or Organization Name: Castlemaine North Primary School


Co-Presenter Name(s): Simone Uren


Country from Which You Will Present: Australia


Language in Which You Will Present: English


Target Audience (such as primary school teachers, high school administrators, students, etc.): teachers who teach writing in any form


Short Session Description (one line): This session will describe how our global community of writers' gives students control over the global connections they make.


Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

The Writers' Club is a global community of student writers that consist of nearly a thousand writers around the world. The Writers' Club differs from most global projects in that the requirements for participation are kept deliberately low - all students need to do is to write, and they receive a global audience for their writing. There is no requirement to write on any particular topic, and students can write when and how often they like.

 

The result is that students form links with others around the world based on their own interests and passions. This more authentic form of global collaboration gives control over the connections made to the students. In this session, we will look at the how the community operates, how it encourages students to read and comment on each others' work, and how it can be a starting point for further opportunities in global education.

Love this, Rob.

Hi Rob, to expand the reach of your session, you might want to add the 2012teachers tag. Cheers.
