Teach This! Teaching with lesson plans and ideas that rock 11/19/2012

  • The Flat Classroom Project – Taking the Long View – Flat Classroom Project

    The “Youtube” keynote is a hinge of our projects – we have renegades and innovators from around the world share a challenge and thoughts for students and teachers as part of each project. Chris Betcher does something FASCINATING – he reaches back to his first global collaborative projects 10 years a go and has found the students from that project and shares what they are doing now.  I'm going to do the same in about  4 years with my first Flat Classroom students. It is tremendous how the students had a head start in the world by collaborating globally. These would make great films for preservice teachers and your classroom. I highly recommend viewing this video. Why do we incorporate global collaboration into our classrooms?  “Australia/Sydney-based award winning educator, Chris Betcher, talks about the long-term advantages for students of connecting and collaborating globally. He includes footage from his students today who worked on global projects over 10 years ago and the impact this had on their lives and future careers. This keynote was produced for the Flat Classroom Project 12-2, November 2012. http://fcp12-2.flatclassroomproject.org/Keynote Chris Betcher: http://www.chrisbetcher.com http://twitter.com/betchaboy”
