Digiteens Go Global

Best Practices that Go the Distance

This presentation will reveal how powerful Web 2.0 and other technologies can be to break down barriers and foster cultural awareness. It will also show how students can use the power of communication, collaboration and creativity to make a difference to the world as we know it in a positive way.
The focus was on building unity, developing skills, and creating positive outcomes. All of these outcomes were built on the development of being a reliable, responsible and capable online learner and teacher in the 21st century.
Based on the work of the Flat Classroom Project, students who had never met before but had communicated online via Web 2.0 tools, came together in Doha, Qatar to workshop an action that could be taken back to their own countries and schools and sustained for the next year.
The Flat Classroom Conference Student Summit provided an opportunity for classrooms to come together from around the world and learn more about what it means to be an online digital citizen and be able to understand each other and work together.
