Participants will be introduced to the hugely successful United Classrooms Global Collaboration Project, connecting classrooms in the United States with partner classes in Australia. This fully resourced project has been designed to foster high quality, online curriculum-facing collaborations through the development of concrete offline relationships. Attendees will be presented with a starter pack containing the full project overview and all related materials before being offered an opportunity to identify a partner class from a list of Australian schools.
The project creates opportunities for students to:

  • Develop meaningful relationships with students in a partner school
  • Develop a personal digital narrative
  • Develop and maintain a personal online homepage
  • Develop an authentic understanding of what it is like to live in a different locality.
  • Work together to create an online living history database
  • Gain an authentic understanding of similarities and differences in the values and attitudes of people from different generations in contrasting localities.

This session is sponsored by Learnology.
