Short Session Description(one line): Learn how Web2.0 technology is completely changing the learning spaces of the traditional, physical classroom - virtual, global, digital.
Full Session Description:
Technology is changing learning spaces. They are becoming virtual, global, 24/7 and mobile. The ‘cloud’ enables learning that can be more relevant and engaging for our digital students.
This session will look at some of these changing spaces. Classroom stories will be shared, illustrating how technology can be used to bring in experts, global students and educationalists to the physical and virtual classroom. These stories include lunchtime classes with an author from New York, students from Malaysia and USA learning together in the one virtual classroom and the magic of web conferencing/videoconferencing for classroom purposes. The hardware required, web2.0 tools used and the steps and procedures required will also be discussed.
