Abstract:
How does a hashtag serve as the nexus of a global learning community that invites educators to bring their questions and perspectives to universal inquiry about preparing learners for the demands of an increasingly connected world? Extending place-based practitioner research in U.S. public, charter and independent schools, a team of doctoral students, alumni and faculty from the University of Pennsylvania planned, facilitated and continue to reflect upon a week- long study of innovative education models in Helsinki, Finland (seepennfinn13.wordpress.com). Using multiple lenses, which included instructional innovation, teacher leadership, and home- school partnerships, the team employed social media tools such as Twitter, Facebook, blogs, Skype, YouTube and Google Hangouts to engage fellow U.S. and Finnish educators in a ubiquitous dialogue. Site visits were extended through real-time and virtual conversations with educators from K-12 and higher ed institutions. This preliminary exploration has served as a catalyst for partnerships with Finnish educators and serves as a launching pad for further university work. The PennFinn research team will take you inside the synchronistic conversations that emerged through the research trip and sustains the conversation. This initial investigation provides models for today’s university by stepping outside the brick and mortar of classrooms in order to maximize resources (human, virtual, experiential, text-based, etc.) to expand the capacity for collective investigation.
