Full Session DescriptionObjectives: Participants will:
Schools are not meeting the needs of today's learners. Each student is unique. However, schools were set up as "one size meets all" organizations with teachers as experts. Learners of all ages are self-organizing learning objects, creating their PLN, and joining social networks to pursue their own interests. The roles of teachers and students are changing. The world is getting smaller and flatter. Global projects work when each student uses their strengths to make the team work effectively to meet the goals of the project.
