Cross Posted at The Global Classroom Project
In several hours time, on October 3, at 10.15AM local time, I will be presenting (with Nigel Mitchell) on ‘Working in the Global Classroom‘ at the Australian Computers in Education Conference in Perth, Western Australia.
Featuring a skype link-up with Julie Lindsay, from Flat Classroom Projects, the broad goals of the session are to:
- Present our rationale for integrating global perspectives across the curriculum
- Showcase our stories and reflections as connected “global educators”
- Interact with global educators in real time to discuss the possibilities, challenges, and learning opportunities afforded by global interactions.
You can read the full outline here.
How can you get involved?
A key goal of this presentation is to involve our national and international audience through streaming the session LIVE via UStream & inviting global educators around the world to help us write our presentation notes.
Please feel free to comment using the #globalclassroom hashtag, and chat with our session participants. This will be our official backchannel to the live / UStream presentation.
If all goes to plan, you can follow us LIVE on UStream here: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/the-mgraffin-channel#events
We’d also sincerely appreciate it if you’d take some time to share your advice, resources, links, and suggestions for teachers new to connecting and collaborating globally.
We are crowd-sourcing our presentation notes in Google Docs, seeking to showcase the power of international collaboration in action.
Please tweet this widely – we’d like to make this a truly global resource.
