What is it?
If You Learned Here is a global collaboration and authoring project for students. Through student-driven dialogue, this project promotes curiosity, empathy, and understanding. Each participating school starts by writing pages for an eBook that will link our schools together and provide the spark for student questions. The crowdsourced student questions will be answered by individual students around the world!
IYLH 2017 has three phases:
1) Share & Wonder - Each school uses Book Creator to make 2 pages for our global eBook. While reading the finished book, students submit questions to be answered in phase 2.
2) Dialogue & Discover - Student questions will be curated and posted to Flipgrid. Then participating students will record brief video responses, creating a rich multimedia exchange of different ideas, perspectives, and cultures.
3) Reflect & Celebrate! - Together, we share our learning and celebrate our experience as authors, learners, and friends.
We also have a quick launch just for teachers. This will be a time to get to know one another, try out our collaboration tools, and answer questions. Refer to the project calendar for additional details. We are willing to work with individual schools who face schedule challenges during the project.
Participating schools need:
While a Twitter account is not required, we encourage participants to use classroom, school, and/or teacher Twitter accounts to extend the conversation via the #ifyoulearnedhere hashtag.
The time commitment is approximately 1-3 hours per week from February 16-April 7. Our blog will walk you through the entire process step by step! You'll need a general comfort level with technology, but you certainly don't need to be a tech expert to participate happily. All levels are welcome.
