Wikis are powerful tools for the classroom and schools. The presentation at ISTE 2012 had many hands on tutorials, however, this presentation includes the outline and links to projects mentioned during the session.
We can’t have a world class education without the world in our class.
I and my fellow collaborators must have the 3 habits essential to global collaboration: receive, read, respond

Julie: Our aim is to create projects and opportunities across all levels of education. Right now we have FCP and NetGenEd for high school, Digiteen for upper ES, MS and HS, AWL for upper ES, Eracism for MS HS and our new pilot this semester is Building Bridges to Tomorrow for K-2 level – over 40 classrooms from about more than 10 countries

Education has been singular but students must have the skillset to operate in plural. We have to help students turn me into we at least some of the time and understand how to assess.
