Seriously, we are all tired but feeling good that the Flat Classroom Project has been a success in more ways than one. The intensity of a short-run collaboration brings out the true character of all participants. It has helped my class to bond with each other and with me far more effectively than the regular day-to-day classroom experience. I am very proud that all of my students managed to finish their project and upload a personal video to their collaborative wiki page.
Well, I feel as though I have been around the world and back on a non-stop flight! A similar feeling to being hit by a Dhaka bus.

Yesterday in our last class before the winter break my Flat Classroom students and myself as well as a couple of guest teachers discussed the project. The students shared their experiences, thoughts, suggestions for the future development of the project and more! I have created a series of podcasts from this discussion and invite you to listen in, from wherever you are in the world, to our conversations.
Part 1: Hello
This short podcast is a 'Hello' in Bangla and a discussion about the characteristics of the Bangla language. (2 min 22 sec)
