  • Global competition for jobs means that today’s students must not only be well-educated, creative problem solvers but they must also be equipped to collaborate globally.
  • Julie: We describe global collaboration in stages. GC 3.0 = more emphasis on co-created multimedia products, use of social media tools for communication, high expectations to connect in an ongoing manner, student-centered learning
  • Julie I took like-minded out b/c sometimes our students aren’t like minded and that is where the beauty arises, learning to workwith those who are not like yourself. Just a note.

  • Global Collaboration 3.0: Where full online engagement using Web 2 and other tools supports learning objectives Finding a voice,Taking charge of learning,Choices and ownership, Empowerment
  • 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

  • So, the flat classroom removes the barriers of time and space, allowing students to collaborate across the world and even across time with legacy projects… our student’s grandchildren could literally contribute to a project that today’s students did in gradeschool.
  • Julie: Ribble and Bailey define……..thanks to Mike Ribble for providing a workable entry into digital citizenship in the classroom
  • All students and teachers should conduct themselves in a professional and culturally sensitive manner. This includes the types of avatars they choose, the styles of language they use, and the quality of material they upload. Digiteen Project is a launching pad into this professional learning mode. Here is an example of students solving communication problems themselves.
