Short Session Description (one line): Building Real-World Skills - Increasing Collaboration within the Classroom and Beyond

 

Full Session Description (as long as you would like):  While most agree on the importance of mastering content knowledge, perhaps even more important in today's fast-paced, interconnected, global world are the real-world skills of communication and collaboration.  This session will focus on integrating free web-based tools, such as Skype and Google Docs, to increase student collaboration and foster skills that will help them become competitive in today's economy.  We will explore techniques for collaboration within the four walls that still exist in many of today's classrooms, but more importantly, we will take a look at ways that teachers can connect their students to others from around the world by participating in global learning projects using the multitude of free tools that technology makes available.
