Tell YOUR Global Collaboration Story

 Julie in Colorado Hills, July 2010

The bulk of this blog post is cross-posted from my colleague and friend Vicki Davis (Cool Cat Teacher). However, given my lack of real blogging lately due to the VERY busy Summer trip around the USA (more about that later!), here is my introduction.

We are delighted (and exhausted!) to announce our book contract with Pearson Education! The book will be about global collaboration and Flat Classroom(tm) Projects. Needless to say we are frantically collecting data and writing and re-writing and shaping this into something that will be GLOBALLY accessible, useful and support authentic educational collaboration between classrooms around the world. In conjunction with this venture we want to hear about YOUR global collaborative stories. We are trying to tell our story and want to include some of the best stories globally in the book. 

We are sending this message out through our networks, but want to make sure that all of you who are collaborating on a global basis have this invitation to share your story.  This is the email we're sending out today.

Consider this an invitation to tell your story!  Thank you!


Hi everyone!

We're so excited to be publishing a book with Pearson Publishing teaching how to connect classrooms on a global basis and we want your stories!

Please share your story of collaboration by emailing it to story@flatclassroombook.com!  If your story is selected, we will email you with a permission form and confirmation of the text selected for the book (whether it has been edited or not!)

Has global collaboration changed your view of the world? Improved some area of your life? Established friendships that you still maintain?

Was it a positive experience? Negative? What lesson did you learn from the project?

Please share -- we want to know!

Thank you everyone!
