Facilitated by Vicki Davis and Julie Lindsay, this session is a virtual link-up with the Flat Classroom Conference in Doha, Qatar and Educon 2.1 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. This event is also our official kick-off event for our www.FutureofEducation.com interview series, sponsored by the KnowledgeWorks Foundation and with support from Elluminate!
Interesting and dynamic, as well as interactive video!
From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world.
The purpose of the vFCR is to provide a 24/7 space for connected learning. It has been created to support the Flat Classroom Conference being held in Qatar on January 24-26 2009. This includes those attending the Flat Classroom Conference and those wishing to participant as virtual attendees. It also is being used to support teachers and students on ongoing Flat Classroom projects.
