Global LearningA learning-centered initiative designed to emphasize
  • collaboration
  • communication
  • creativity
  • critical thinking
  • reflection

This focus strives to create flexible learning environments where the use of technology is a seamless part of the process, ubiquitous in connecting learners to content, each other and the global community. Students work with digital tools to create podcasts, video casts, still images and mind maps, and use Web-based environments such as Web 2.0 tools, Moodle, blogs and wikis, to construct, communicate and collaborate across time, space and geographical boundaries.

This innovative, performance-based project, developed with help from Dr. Punya Mishra and Dr. Matthew Koehler, professors at Michigan State University, includes an intense professional development component centered on maximizing the relationship between technology, course content and teaching practices. Teachers engage in discussions, discourse and activities that stretch the boundaries of traditional learning, as they work to design lessons and interactions in the community that transform and redefine the role of technology in education.
