What is a Student Summit?

As a culmination to the project, classrooms are invited to schedule virtual presentations within Elluminate. The links for these meetings (and eventually the recordings) is in the table below. These sessions run for about 45 minutes. They provide an opportunity for students to talk about their work during the project, based on their team and topic. They also provide a virtual learning experience and real-time interaction with an international audience on a professional level. In other words, they flatten the walls of the classroom by inviting the world in and providing a platform for students to present and share their knowledge and to learn valuable digital citizenship lessons.

Past Student Summits to review: FCP09-3, FCP09-2, FCP09-1, FCP08.

What do I do in the summit?

Follow the Student Summit instructions. Each student shares for 1-2 minutes about their topic and the most important thing that they learned on the project in Elluminate while their student summit photograph is showing on the screen. The summit is recorded and posted here along with the photographs. Teachers will prepare and load the graphics in the summit.

Who is invited?

Educators and professionals around the world often attend the summit. They are typically recorded and public.
