Building Bridges Today that Society Tomorrow Can Walk Across - Connect, Collaborate, Change
The aim of the Flat Classroom® Conference is to bring together geographically dispersed participants with a view to sharing ideas while using mobile computing, learning about Web 2.0 communication and collaboration tools in a flattened world, and, in the case of the workshop, working on a project theme that can be transplanted back into their home school.
The selected theme will inspire unity and action as well as fostering continued connections after the actual event. It is envisaged this will improve global understanding and cement friendships for ongoing collaborations. It is also envisaged that this will provide an opportunity for students and teachers together to 'create the future' through exploration of a global or social issue and developing an 'action' plan to work globally to overcome this.
