I am a 4th grade teacher in Culver City, CA!

This question is often raised. The 'collective' or 'networked' brain is a powerful element but when it is a 'global' brain even more so. A full range of perceptions, experiences and thoughts can be brain stormed, discussed and shared and provide an amazing resource. The following question was raised at the 2013 conference by Steve Hargadon and look at the amazing responses from the global brain! Participants in this session brainstormed on the whiteboard and the chat.

For me, GEC is an open opportunity to develop professionally, to share ideas and to meet professionals from whom we have a learnt. Once you attend the first session, you become GEC-holic. After last year 's conference, I have shared what I have learnt with my colleagues and put into practice a number of new…Continue

Our interlocutor seems shy but she is not. Her curiosity gets the best of her and she soon takes control of the conversation. She tells us interesting things about her school, her class, her teacher and her friends. It is her daily routine and the basis of her future. And she certainly knows what she is talking about, having attended classes for more than eight years. Quite a professional!
