Flat Connections: ISTE Preconference Workshops
Julie Lindsay, founder of Flat Connections, will be offering two preconference learning opportunities for educators:
The Global Educator Workshop will be held in Philadelphia, PA June 25th & 26th. This workshop is for K-12 educators as well as leaders in schools and government who make pertinent decisions about how teachers and students learn and do. Participants will be immersed in 'flat' or connected learning modes and explore global collaboration as a pedagogy. A hands-on approach will allow participants to explore, discuss and model collaborative use of emerging technologies scaffolded by the steps and actions to flatten the classroom. Focus will also be on how to participate in a global project, how to engage learners and your extended network in global interactions, as well as how to support global education and global competency within your school or learning environment.
Create a Social Entrepreneurship Learning Collaborative will be held on Saturday, June 27th at the conference venue. Explore social entrepreneurship objectives fused with emerging technologies for connected and collaborative learning as well as community building for change. Use design thinking, flattened learning actions and social media to understand how to implement engaging curriculum to support student social entrepreneurship objectives and enhance global understanding. Registration information here.
