Excited to be part of this conference in Australia next June
I’m proud to have been asked to be part of this conference in Sydney as one of the facilitators. List and short introduction of the other facilitators found below. This text is from the conference website. More information to be found there. Sydney 2014 Flat ConnectionsThe Flat Connections Conference is a unique event that includes students and educators to envision the future of education and of learning communities as they use leading technology tools such as wikis, blogs, social networking and digital storytelling. The conference is diverse in participation while allowing smaller groups to work with leading world-class presenters in a “flattened” environment where virtual participants from remote corners of the world also join in the conversation and action.
Flat Connections Conference is produced by Flat Encounters, designers of alternative conferences. Educators will leave the conference understanding how to collaborate globally and a better understanding of how educational technology supports this and with skills and contacts in hand to start projects. Students will leave the conference with leadership skills, technology skills, presentation skills, and a better understanding of diverse cultures and collaboration.
Join us in Sydney, Australia. June 18-20, 2014
