Learning about the world, with the world
Taken by Alan Levine - It's meant to be me welcoming everyone to the conference
Day 1 of the conference was busy (of course!) with student teams and teachers teams developing their concepts and pitching them for feedback. We had four inspirational mini-presentations from NGO representatives who were involved in the Japan tsunami aftermath. This generated lots of ideas for action projects.
Being a virtual participant is HARD work! We know this! We are breaking new ground in this area in so many ways. The conference goes by so quickly and we know some of you are finding it difficult to connect with your teams - or to even know what team you are on. Here are EASY steps to get the most out of being virtual!
So what should you be doing as a virtual participant??
Review the action projects and follow links to material on the wiki. You can help with building the team action project - helping to find resources, creating media etc.
Write a blog post! - We would love to hear from you! We want to hear your thoughts about connecting virtually - what worked, what didn't, how successful you were in real time or asynchronously. We want to hear about what you are doing already to connect your classroomn - share some things about yourself so your team members and all of us can get to know you better! That goes for real as well as virtual.
ok, here we go into Day 2 in Japan - It's going to be busy! See you all online!
