Award winning global collaborators Julie Lindsay and Vicki Davis (co founders of the Flat Classroom Project) are excited to announce the NetGenEd Project, another global collaboration to envision the future of education and social action by inspiring today's students to study leading technology trends and create their vision for the future.
The original Net Generation Education Project in 2009 was the replacement for the original Flat Classroom Horizon Project and included 10 schools with more than 300 students.
In this project, students will study and "mash up" the results of the Horizon Report from the New Media Consortium and Educause (released in January each year) and Tapscott's book Grown Up Digital: How the Net Generation is Changing Your World. Students will study the current research and create wiki-reports with their student partners around the world analyzing current trends and projecting future happenings based upon this collaborative analysis. They will also create personal videos with outsourced clips that are reviewed by an international panel of judges.
This project is also managed by the students who assume roles such as project manager, assistant project manager, and editors of the various wikis.
