One2World Revolution Week 2015 Starts Here

The Revolution... it's not 1:1 it's One2World 

The One2WorldRevolution is an opportunity to celebrate and share what has happened in the Grade 3-5 team since the start of 13-14. We designed the program with great emphasis placed on learning and the processes that are involved in this. We want students who are engaged, excited and deeply involved in the design and processes of learning. We want students to be communicating and engaging beyond the classroom walls. This is our vision for 1:World. There has been a revolution. 

In 2015-16 our first group of One to World students will enter the Middle School. They will be required to have a MacBook as per usual, but unlike any previous intake, they will be armed and dangerous in the use of iPads. Serious skill and seriously different to previous years.

We have an exciting menu ready for you to participate. 
  • Student Team Presentations: Theme: "Learning we are passionate about and want to share with you..."
  • Teacher presentations about effective strategies and uses of technology. 
  • Open Classrooms - During these sessions you are free to visit the classroom and gain a snapshot of life in that One2World classroom.
  • Student Q&A Panel We have assembled a panel of Student Experts from our One2World team. They have a message for teachers in Middle and High School...
Session Structure:

4 days, 16 sessions (4 per day) - 8.20; 10.20; 12:35; 2.05 (i.e. regular Fish Bowl times)
Full session descriptions are below the schedule, so keep reading:
