Global Project Design essentials for success in the classroom
Presented by Julie Lindsay at the Global Education Conference 2011 and the Beijing Learning Summit 2011.

This session will focus on curriculum design and pedagogy to embed global collaborative learning experiences and projects into the classroom to enhance learning outcomes. Emerging technologies allow students to experience communication and interaction with others around the world, however designing a meaningful learning experience through a global project that is also part of the curriculum is an important part of developing global digital citizenship and intercultural awareness. Techniques used in Flat Classroom Projects from upper elementary level to high school level will be shared and discussed.

An educational project that flattens or joins classrooms and people from geographically dispersed places within a technology infrastructure built for a common curricular purpose. Interactions foster cultural understanding and global awareness in the process of learning. Local identity is maintained and celebrated.

Examples of successful Global Projects “Successful global collaborative projects start with planning and designing meaningful and understandableBrain Storm interaction.”

Am I willing to redesign my curriculum to embed a global project into what my class does?“Designing a global collaborative experience involves transcending theobvious real time linkup, fostering higher order thinking and providing opportunities for cultural understanding while usually making a product that impacts others in a positive way. ”
