Join Oliver Schinkten for an in-depth discussion in this video Communicate with the larger community, part of Communication in the 21st Century Classroom.
- In this video, I want to go over…the importance of communication and…collaboration beyond the school.…In the digital age, we're more connected than ever,…and we're able to connect with people…from around the world on a daily basis.…I believe there are three very important reasons…for communicating beyond the school.…The first is probably the biggest…game changer that I've seen in education,…and that is finding an authentic audience…for students to demonstrate their learning to.…It's incredible to see how much students…are willing to step up their game…and take ownership of their learning…when they have an authentic audience.…
Whether this is parents, community members…or the world.…The second reason is that the community,…whether it's your local community…or global community, can provide…opportunities, expertise, and resources…that we're unable to provide within the schools.…And finally, it's important to communicate…with your community to show them…all the great things that your…school and your students are doing…
