Presentation Title: Lead the World

Presentation Description: Students are the greatest textbook ever written for each other, yet, many schools close the book on learning outside classroom walls. After five years of global collaborative classroom excellence, this presentation first uses voices from the keynoters, students, and teachers around the world that have been part of the Flat Classroom projects and conferences to share how education has fundamentally changed through a beautiful medley of voices. Then, hear from Vicki Davis, co-founder, about the 7 principles that can take your classroom global and the current challenges and misconceptions surrounding what it means to globalize your classroom. We hope you’ll join this journey of learning and thank all of our keynoters, students, and teachers, for sharing their voice in this move towards excellence in global education.

Additional Information:
Vicki Davis and Julie Linsday co-founded the Flat Classroom Project in November 2006. In the five years since, more than 5,000 students from age 4 and up have joined with other classrooms around the world to collaborate in projects like The Flat Classroom Project, the Digiteen Project, ‘A week in the Life’ Elementary Flat Classroom Project, and the Eracism Project and the founding of a non-profit to run their conference and face to face events.

Their work and public sharing of pedagogy on their blogs has led to their recent book, Flattening Classrooms, Engaging Minds from Pearson Publishing coming in January 2012.

I hear and see the United States being compared to other nations and I think, wow! We really have to step up our game in education if we want jobs to stay here and America. If we want our children’s degrees to mean anything, education here has to be prestigious. With that being said, we can learn from other cultures and the way they go about education, just like a student can learn from their peer in the sit next to them. It is all UDL because it is a different way to look at things, to teach, to access, to do period. I hope after reading this, you will pass it on. I’m sure they put a lot of effort into this five year long project to inform you of an idea. [...]
