Day 1 of Flat Connections

Interesting points

  • doing 13 pitches in a day is draining
  • listen to others, their idea might be better than yours

The most interesting thing I learnt about yesterday.

yesterday I realised that younger students can be just involved and have just as many ideas as older members of their team. I also realised that self confidence plays a major role in the ability and efficiency to lead a team

Day 1 of flat connections

The most frustrating thing I learned yesterday was that with some global issues on the internet, articles on web pages only have one point of view.

The most surprising thing I learned yesterday was that the teachers pitches were all generally about the same thing or around the same ideas.

I enjoyed working with my group yesterday and coming up with issues.

The most inspiring and frustrating things from yesterday.

The most inspiring thing from yesterday was meeting with teachers who had completely changed their teaching styles by using social networks and had some really fantastic stories to tell. This was in our flat world activity in the morning. It was also inspiring to see everyones amazing ideas and thoughts across the day.

The most frustrating thing was explaining that graph is said graaph not graff. This "conversation" lasted for a looong time and it was interesting to see…

What was the most inspiring thing you learned yesterday

The most inspiring thing I learnt yesterday was about 3D printers and how well some scientists have worked and how hard they have tried to create this amazing machine. They kept persevering and they eventually made the 3D printer.

Day 1 Flat conference 2014

Yesterday was full of exciting ideas buzzing around the room. Students and teachers worked in teams to communicate their different ideas that would change the face of the world in either areas of education or global issues. Inspiring pitches were proposed to one another and ideas were generated and built upon with encouraging feedback. The flat conferences were engaging and it was surprising and interesting to find out about different projects that people have initiated to assist the change…

Day 1 Flat Connections

Day 1 at Flat Connections was really exciting and enjoyable. We had all gotten to know each other from the previous today, so as we were separated into different groups we were comfortable.

I especially enjoyed the part of the day when we were separated into groups with teachers and students. This was interesting as we got to hear different perspectives of what teachers think that learning should be about and what students think.

At the end of the day, we heard…

Wednesday Day 1 of Conference

The most inspiring thing I learned yesterday was using modern technology to enhance and change our ways of learning. The research of cloud computing and others were interesting and a different approach towards our education.

The pitches by the teachers were also surprisingly (sorry) good. They placed in a lot of effort, thought and creativity to make their presentation engaging with their underlying concepts original and achievable.…
