FCGP 14-2 or “Flat Connections Global Project” led by Amy Jambor and Sheri Williams, engages high school age students in global collaboration. The students work on teams to explore the emerging technologies found in the 2014 K-12 Horizon Report. Over ten to twelve weeks, students consistently communicate, collaborate, and create in a global community. Over 180 students across 6 schools and three countries are collaboratively sharing ideas and resources and authoring using a wiki and Google docs to co-develop the creation of an Ebook. Additionally, students will create personal multimedia responses about the specific topic they researched that will include outsourced video clips from their global team members. Students have a unique opportunity to grow as leaders as several participants take on the role of Student Leader. Such responsibilities include conducting online student leader meetings, encouraging and supporting peers, and overseeing team research and development. Student feedback consistently references flat learning as the ultimate connected experience in education.
You can hear from the FCGP project students themselves in November as they will be presenting their learning at the “Global Education Conference Student Summit” this year!
