While I’m there, not only do I get to spend some quality F2F time with Julie, but hopefully I will also spend some time with my good friends Jabiz and Mairin from my last school!
Here is my proposed outline for the two days of training:
Introductory session: Developing the Global Student: Practical Ways to Infuse 21st Century Literacy into Your Classroom (75 – 90 minutes, full group with Q&A)
2 options (60 – 90 min sessions – conducted in small groups, either grade level teams or subject area groups):
- Globally Collaborative Projects: best practice examples and how to get started.
- Web 2.0 trainings – groups for blogging, wikis, social networking, RSS, etc – curriculum/standards based, practical and hands on in a lab setting
Closing session: The 21st Century Educator: Embracing Web 2.0 in your Professional Practice (75 – 90 minutes, full group, with Q&A)
Introductory session: The 21st Century School: Making the Shift Happen – an overview of what current best practice in international schools looks like, the roles of technology facilitators, curriculum coordinators, classroom teachers, and administrators. Sample facilitation structure shared from ISB, MKIS and MIS.
3 options (60 – 90 min sessions – conducted in small groups, either grade level teams or subject area groups):
- Curriculum planning to authentically embed 21st century literacy – practical questions, successful framework, examining current standards and topics and developing ideas to embed technology (60 – 90 minutes per grade level/subject team).

Closing session: ???
I would love to hear your opinion! What do you think I should cover? What’s missing from this list? What would you like to see presented at your school?
