Presentation 1

How flat is your classroom? Use these 7 steps for successful global collaboration

The flat classroom concept is based on the constructivist principle of a multi-modal learning environment that is student-centered and a level playing field for teacher to student and student to teacher interaction. Based on the experiences of the award winning Flat Classroom Project this session will detail seven essential steps for lowering your classroom walls to promote connection and understanding between geographically dispersed, ethnically and culturally diverse groups of students in meaningful, global cooperative authentic learning experiences.

I was fortunate to have Vicki Davis join me via Skype for this presentation and e her ideas about flattening the classroom.
