Published on

Micro - projects for simulating working at global level
Presentation during International Conference on Ubiquitous Learning, 30-31 May 2014, Shanghai, China, organised by Shanghai Open University http://2014conference.sou.edu.cn/
Nowadays the ubiquitous use of online and mobile collaboration tools enables participants in different locations to create knowledge and work together. This paper shares the results of several micro-projects done in the last 7 years in which first-year introductory technology students from Bentley University in the United States and fourth-year multimedia students from Politehnica University of Timisoara in Romania worked together in an online global educational environment to research technology trends and create multimedia artifacts that shared their findings.
