Flat Classroom Conversations: Part 2

Gr11_1 Gr11_2

Bangladesh ITGS Class: Without Walls
Continuing our conversations about the Flat Classroom Project and our 2 week collaboration with Vicki Davis' class in Camilla Georgia.

The project was completed on Tuesday December 12. The student wiki pages were locked down that day and now a team of international judges are reviewing each page and selecting winners for the handful of awards we have nominated. This is a bit of fun for us all. As I see it all of the students are 'winners' and any final recognition for a job well done will be icing on the cake for them.

Part 4: Flat Classroom Topic Discussion
Individual students talk frankly about their Flat Classroom Project topics. These were based on the ten flatteners discussed in Thomas Friedman's book, 'The World is Flat'.
