Flat Connections Global Project
The Flat Connections Global Project is a fully supported and managed global collaborative experience for you and your students and is the ultimate online experience for middle and high school students (typically Grade/Year 9-12, 14-18 years old). It challenges all learners to connect and communicate beyond their immediate classroom and school. It also encourages collaboration and co-creation of final artifacts as well as student leadership, while exploring emerging technologies and envisioning the future of learning.
Students in the Flat Connections Global Project will work in cross-school teams to research and discuss new ideas and actions for future learning through the use of technology. The topics studied and discussed are real-world scenarios based on the current Horizon Report K-12 2017 on emerging technologies in education (for the 2018-1 project) as well as a variety of influential thought leaders and authors including Yong Zhao, ‘World Class Learners’; David Price OBE, ‘Open’; and Thomas Friedman, ‘The World is Flat’.
NOTE – in 2018-2 (September-December) this project will be redesigned – further updates coming.
