  • My proposition today is that learningis flat, has to be flat. I am talking about a shift in pedagogy, a shift in mindset, and an essential purpose for the integration of technology across the curriculum
  • What is flat learning and why is it important
  • Teacher to student, student to student, student to teacher. Expert advisors, sounding boards, opportunities to learn from and with anyone
  • Use of mobile technologies, blended learning
  • More than ½ a billion mobile phones in Africa now
  • It is not in the future….it is NOW!
  • What leadership skills are needed? What decisions need to be made? Strategic planning?
  • Connect yourself, connect your school, connect your students!
  • Daily workflow using technology should include interactions with others. Daily workflow should include ways to share synchronously and asynchronously. This includes the use of search engines and tools to support real time and asynchronous interactions. Skype, educational network memberships, us of Web 2 tools such as a blog and a wiki which is open to others to interact with.
  • Pull technologies bring the information and updates to you.
  • Connected to a PLN or PLC is a 21C skill for all learners. This is not about social media as such, but about using networking tools in responsible and thoughtful ways to support learning objectives. This is about using the technology to make sustained and meaningful connections. This is about professional use of social media for teachers and students.
  • Become a teacherpreneur! Find opportunities through your PLN and bring them to your students and your school. A teacherpreneur is a teacher who sees an opportunity to make a profitable learning experience for students through the forging of partnerships with other classrooms with common curricular goals and expectations.
  • Video streaming to the world – Flat Classroom Conference 2013
  • Hidden curriculum – can be opened by those with technology accessLearning capital – Learning experience of new implementations – success involves both teachers and students
  • Information - where does it comes from? How is it vetted?Location - we need local and global connections to produce well-educated studentsGeneration - how can learners connect across generations?Communication - it is important to include both technological and non-technological pathways of communication
  • Include different connection experiences across the curriculum
  • Although technology is used in communication, digital citizenship is still squarely about relating to people.
  • Promote discussions about individual digital identity – including for older students and adults Personal Branding
  • Starts with access – crucial to a good educationfive areas of awareness: technology, individual, social, cultural, and global – for framing analysis of online situationsFour key “rays” of understanding: Safety, Privacy, Copyright, and Legal; Etiquette and Respect; Habits of Learning; and Literacy and Fluency. Technical awareness is the core awareness that enables a person to be a digital citizen. It lets you put on your “shoes” and run into the 21st century. As a digital citizen, you decide how you will set up your pro- files, interact with others, and behave online. A good digital citizen is aware of social situations bothonline and face-to-face. Social awareness allows the digital citizen to interpret situations and retain interpersonal skills with friends and colleagues whether they are face-to-face or online. A person who is culturally aware is alert for differences in cultures and knows how to build trust relationships so the communication of those differences can flow. Understanding geography, politics, and local bandwidth concerns makes one a complete and effective digital citizen. Nationality transcends culture because most nations are made up of many different cultures.
  • Develop a powerful digital citizenship curriculum – across the curriculum – be open to current events and opportunities to discuss global impact. Keep the topics alive through active research and interactions with others. Bring the world into the conversation
  • Are you teachers and students globally competent? Being in an international school does not necessarily provide passage to this skill. Opportunities to learn with and form others around the world to foster deeper understanding will.
  • A future Employment skill
  • Educational networks are for community building and collaboration.Wikis are for disruption and collaboration
  • How many of you as educators, as leaders, as classroom teachers, as administrators have co-created something with someone else at a distance? Consider the skills involved, consider the tools needed, consider the Internet access, timeframe etc
  • How do teachers learn to collaborate?How do students?What are the best tools?How do you teach collaboration?
  • How do you learn to collaborate?Know about of Web 2 toolsKnow how to sustain a learning community – online and offlineDevelop technopersonal skills
  • Connected LearningCitizenship, with a splash of Global CompetencyCollaboration – but the sort that includes Co-Creation
  • Flipped classroom a form of blended learningWhere are the collaborative models?
  • FLAT
