Welcome to Creative Agency in the Connected Classroom.  The link to the 44 prompts to start connecting with other classrooms/experts is here.
Our slide deck is available here.

In no other era of education have schools had the opportunity to do more than they can do right now. Do students in our classes know and understand how much power and influence they can have within their community? As often as possible, schools need to prompt students (and teachers) to remember and consider this phrase: you are needed.

What happens when we reimagine learning to be the catalyst for real-time change?
Can students curate digital poetry to connect across continents?
Can entire schools collaborate on music videos from oceans apart?
Can classes debate, and bring awareness to global concerns by co-authoring podcasts?
How could global design showcases finance Kiva loans?
Can you and your students use your blogs to benefit of others?
Do your students have access to authentic clients who will put their creativity to good use?

The session will be highly collaborative, and will ask you to engage in creative work. By the end, you have built a bridge which extends from your context outwards. We hope you’ll be sure to invite other L2 participants to cross that bridge too.
