What images do the words ‘global student’ bring to mind, how about ‘digital citizen’?  Do you see a classroom full of students working on PEDs? Or a twitter style PLN where learning continues 24/7? Maybe a glimpse at students on the other side of the world sharing stories about their classroom and what’s in their lunchbox; or maybe you see something much more sinister even dangerous?  In a world where technology transfers information faster than we can consume it we have realised learning opportunities that amaze and excite both student and teacher in their richness and complexity.  We have also seen poor judgement and grievous interaction that has lead to injury, and even death.  So how can we encourage students to become masters of technology while teaching them to safely share in arenas where information they post lives on forever?
This week #whatisschool tackles the opportunities and problems of opening the classroom to digital media as we explore how to help students become leaders, thinkers, creators and digital citizens in a global arena.
