The chosen topic for this session was a bit of a blend because we had a larger than usual selection of topics we combined two similar ones “Class based projects” and “Sharing projects with other classes around the world”. This was a terrific session recorded as usual, and with many ideas shared on the whiteboard, in text and through audio.
We did a double poll as we had more than five possible topics and then were able to combine the most popular as they were about projects. This was a very lively session with lots of discussion through the whiteboard, in the text and via audio.
There were also a number of references to and links for projects just starting or already in progress and also for some former ones. Some (hopefully most) of those mentioned in the session are given here!
This session has made me think again about some of the activities I have done with my regional students in the past (for example a publicity or tourist leaflet for their own community) and how we might take this global. I was also interested in how many of the ideas were based around non-tech ways of sharing but further enhanced by the inclusion of an “e”-facet.
