The Wisdom of Crowds: Why the Many Are Smarter Than the Few sends educators a critical message that individuals can no longer independently learn all they need to know. In a globally connected world, there is enormous value in using online tools to collaboratively connect and learn with others.
Join award-winning online learning pioneer, Dr. Yvonne Marie Andres, as she discusses how to successfully integrate project-based, collaborative learning by showcasing the best content, tools, and resources that support teachers and students as they strive to master 21st century learning skills. This webinar will help educational leaders understand that while mass collaboration has many benefits, without some structure it can lead to chaos and frustration. Youth need to learn collaborative, 21st century learning skills, through safe, structured, supervised, educational projects. Teachers need guidance in transitioning from traditional learning to new learning tools and experiences (e.g. Flexbooks, blended learning environments, collaborative projects, co-created content, global exhibitions and competitions, and virtual field trips). Move to the next level of online use the collaborations, people connections, and social interactions become as important as the information resources.
