Transforming Learning: A Local and Global Perspective

NECC in San Antonio is just around the corner and I am busily preparing for some of the events I am actively participating in.

The Tuesday (July 1) at NECC this year is 'international' day and starts with a breakfast meeting with the ISTE International Committee, moves at 11am onto the UNESCO ICT Competency Standards for Teachers, then at 12.30pm Technology and Educational Change: A World Perspective a panel session with myself and other international participants, then from 2-4 International NETS: ICT Around the World, where I will be helping to facilitate a table looking at iNETS and other influences for technology standards.

The International panel will be an amazing event as we have collected together educators from around the world who are witnessing the changes and shifts in learning as it is being influenced by developments in technology.

I am going to talk about the International Baccalaureate Organisation and then move onto more local (for me) ideas and share the developments equally amazing and awe-inspiring developments in Qatar as it moves towards being a knowledge society. ICT Qatar are implementing programs that will transform education, and they are doing it with confidence and well thought out direction. Then of course there is my school, Qatar Academy, and how we are implementing a 1:1 mobile, ubiquitous environment called under the umbrella of E-Learning for Life.
Here is the slideshow I will run and speak to during the 7 minutes I have to speak on the International panel at NECC
