I copied this from the national blog. I can’t wait for the opportunity to hear Vicki Davis speak. Vicki inspired me to start my own flat classroom initiative with fellow STAR Discovery Educator, Anthony Armstrong, a teacher at the Korea International School. I actually presented our collaborative project at PETE&C last week.
If you’re even remotely familiar with the world of educational blogging, then I’m sure I don’t need to introduce you to Vicki Davis. Her blog, CoolCatTeacher, is one of the most popular blogs in the EduBlogosphere. The Flat Classroom Project wiki won an EduBlogs Award for Best Wiki of 2008. She is a master at global collaboration and a phenomenal teacher. And I have the distinct feeling that she has figured out some trick that allows her to squeeze 30 hours every work day. Lest I forget, she’s also one of our most recent STAR Discovery Educators!
In a time when we have to expand our minds, enrich our curriculum, and leave no child behind… there is now talk about “flattening” our classrooms. Learn what a flat classroom is and the steps to easily make your classroom more global, more effective, and more relevant from a pioneer in the practice. How can connecting your classroom with other classrooms in the world be done safely and effectively? How can you integrate it into an already overtaxed curriculum?
