Press Release October 2012
Join us in Yokohama for Flat Classroom® Conference Asia 2013
It’s time to put your plans into place to attend the very next Flat Classroom® Conference to be held on March 8-10, at the Yokohama International School. Flat Classroom® co-founders, Julie Lindsay and Vicki Davis and conference organisers have put together another magnificent program and invite YOU to REGISTER now.
The Flat Classroom® Conference
is a unique event that includes both students and educators as they use
leading technology tools such as wikis, blogs, social networking and
digital storytelling. The conference is diverse in participation while
allowing smaller groups to work with leading world-class presenters in a
"flattened" environment where virtual participants also join in the
conversation and action from remote corners of the world. The conference
is technology-rich, expecting participants to use a variety of creative
and collaborative tools to develop exciting and innovative multimedia
messages. The conference environment is 1:1, and provides a sound model
for those schools that are already 1:1 or are moving in that direction.
In order to recognize and appreciate the challenges facing our host country, Japan, our Conference theme will be: How do we help each other? We
are fortunate to have very close relations with two intermediate
schools in the tsunami-hit Tohoku region of Japan, as well the Tohoku
International School. In order to highlight the opportunities that we
have to support others, in our local environments, participants will be
asked to develop project ideas that respond to the conference theme,
while working in small groups.
event is targeted to all teachers and students of past, current and
future global collaborations as well as Information Technology teachers
and Directors and school administrators who are responsible for
pedagogical development with curriculum design, global collaboration,
global competency, and international mindedness in their schools.
Educators will leave the conference understanding how to collaborate
globally and with skills and contacts in hand to start projects.
Students will leave the conference with leadership skills, technology
skills, presentation skills, and a better understanding of diverse
cultures and collaboration. Read more details about the exciting Conference Format and Conference Schedule for joining us in Japan in March 2013.
Internationally acclaimed leaders include Alan Levine, Sharon Peters Julie Lindsay, and Kim Cofino!
