Short Session Description:

Explore strategies and techniques for how to flatten a classroom as a pedagogical approach to teaching and learning that starts with creating and sustaining connected learning within the class itself.

Full Session Description:

Directors and co-founders of Flat Classroom started creating global collaborative projects in 2006. Since then 1000's of students and 100's of educators across 25+ countries have been part of a series of projects, many live events, and a dynamic online network. But wait! Being flat does not always mean going global. The Flat Classroom is a pedagogical approach to teaching and learning that starts with connecting the teacher to the class and then looking beyond. The Flat Classroom mission is to provide support, encouragement, strategies and pedagogy for classrooms globally to learn how to connect and sustain collaborative working modes. Teachers who want to inspire learners through intercultural awareness, enhanced digital citizenship skills and attitudes and connected learning will find useful tools and resources through attending this session.

In this session we will:

  • Share pedagogical approaches to connecting and collaborating in the classroom K-12, and beyond!
  • Explore Flat Classroom Projects
  • Browse tools and resources available for global collaboration
  • Share stories of connected learning
  • Come to an understanding of what a Flat Classroom is and how any teacher can flatten their classroom walls now
