Take Five days this week and we will all learn from the students and what they have found out about their trend. In fact take ONE more day and all content, including the personal videos created by each student, should be on the wiki!
For the Student Summit students are asked to prepare answers for:
- What is the most significant trend for your topic?
- What is the best resource you found for this project?
- What is your prediction in this trend/area of impact that you think is most likely to happen?
- User created content
- Social networking
- Mobile phones
- Virtual worlds
- New scholarship and emerging forms of publication
- Massively multiplayer educational gaming
This is a daunting task for the students as not only are they coping with the technology of online conferencing, for the first time many of them, but they will have an international audience listening and interacting with them. Well at least we have planned it that way! Given that the summit is being run in all time zones we will not be able to have ALL classes in together but hope that students will be able to login from home at night when their partners on the other side of the world are in class. This concept of time is giving all members of this project a heightened sense of what it means to live in a world where when you are awake, a large percentage of the rest of the world are asleep!
For a full outline of the summit see our airset calendar embedded in the wiki page.
But, we do need an audience! We do have Five x 10 = 50 seats to fill in Elluminate, so please email me or Vicki Davis if you wish to join us and we can send the URL to login to the Horizon Project on Elluminate. Why not Take 5 and join the Horizon Project Student Summit this week!
Wish us luck!
