"Students at a small country school, discuss their use of technology in the classroom, how they engage with technology, learn both inside and outside their classrooms and work on global projects. The use of elluminate to link up a school in Malaysia with one in Australia is also highlighted."
"Listen2Learners is a chance to meet digital learners, find out who they are, and see how they really learn, communicate and collaborate. It’s a chance to glimpse the future now.
Young people may be learners today, but tomorrow they are employees, employers, citizens, CEOs and community leaders so decision makers in government, business, industry and the social arena are taking notice of how young people learn with technology.
What young people think and have to say is helping to shape decisions and inform policies.
The Department is partnering with 13 school teams from Victoria and interstate to provide an opportunity for members of the community to meet and learn from digital learners. Listen2Learners will be held on Monday 11 October, 2010 from 10am to 2.30pm at Experimedia, State Library of Victoria. Professor Stephen Heppell from the UK will act as patron and share his knowledge about the very best digital learning from around the world."
