Hello from Doha, Qatar
Qatar Academy are proud to be the host of the first Flat Classroom Conference: Leadership Workshop and Student Summit
to be held January 24-26, 2009 in Doha, State of Qatar. This conference has been kindly sponsored and supported by HSBC Bank.
The Flat Classroom Project
is a global, collaborative project using Web 2.0 tools for connection, communication, collaboration and creation. The concept and practice of 'flattening' your classroom draws on 21st century pedagogical practices that include personal learning networks, online learning and a constructivist approach using established and emerging technologies.
You are invited to be part of this amazing get together of leaders, educators and students as we workshop, discuss and take action about what it means to lead, teach, learn and live in an increasingly flat world. Some scholarships are available to support K-12 educators around the world to come and bring students for the summit.
A reminder that registration deadline for the Flat Classroom Conference (Doha, January 24-26) is October 12 for the Student Summit and October 26 for the Leadership Workshop.
