Creating the Preferable Future Through International Collaborative Learning
Technological and communications breakthroughs are creating great disruption for the culture of learning. WFS conference speaker, Dr. Yvonne Marie Andres, is an e-learning pioneer. This Forum discussion explores the benefits, challenges and the future promise of international collaborative learning -- for individuals, communities and humanity. Through programs like the 2011 International CyberFair and the Doors to Diplomacy competitions, youth and educators from 40 countries are making a serious effort to tackle everything from international adoptions, to saving our oceans, to promoting cultural diplomacy with the Muslim world.
