Yes, we will be in Beijing for a week so that our 8 wonderful Instructional Technology grad students will be able to present about Instructional Design and facilitate hands-on workshops with teachers and students.
The Flat Classroom Conference is unique in that it includes teachers and students from around the world. That means that we have attendees from a variety of different countries who will attend.
Believe it or not!!!!!! You can attend too!!!!!!
This conference will be streamed through the Internet. That means that people can watch it from almost anywhere in the world. But there’s more . . .
Some teachers and students will be able to actually take part in the conference virtually. That means that they will be involved in the small group activities. They will listen to what is happening and respond through an online chat room for that group. Unfortunately, the deadline for signing up has passed, but you will be able to watch the conference.
- The Leadership Strand will involve adults who will explore collaborative learning modes and emerging technologies that support these while designing new instructional models for immediate use in their own classrooms.
- The Student Strand will involve 100 students who will be challenged to be part of an action project which asks them to envisage solutions to problems identified as “Our Global Future Living Together.”
