Learning in Little Big Classrooms


Published on

Gain an insight into classrooms where learning is increasingly virtual, global and 24/7. Learning goes beyond physical walls and the timetable. Learn how this can take place, digital tools to use and ways to use these tools for powerful global connections and learning. Examples of blended, flipped, vertical and horizontal learning from the classroom will be shared eg a weekly linkup with an author from New York, asynchronous and synchronous global projects, virtual classrooms etc. This presentation was given to the ICTEV conference 2012.

  30. 30. 1) I think the important things for learningforeign language would be so we cancommunicate with other people or friends. ihave some friends over in america and others inindonesia and austria, i have to stop and thinkbefore i can reply back because English is theirsecond language.2) My favoruite way of studying foreignlanguages would be actually talking with theother people. and playing games with them orlistening to the music.
  31. 31. One great way we help us with learning is usingdifferent programs and voice recordings oniPods and other technology, so you can havefun using the technology while learning.Renee
