Global collaboration starts with connecting yourself to the world. Students are the greatest textbook ever written for each other. The same is true for teachers. We are passionate about connecting and facilitating effective collaborations between classrooms because we’ve seen the power of how it can engage students and teach them the skills they need to be successful in the 21st century.
We want to bring in people who are nervous, who don’t know how, or who have tried to connect and were frustrated. We also want to bring back those teachers who tried it and got burned out. Now it is time to enlarge the circle of global collaborative excellence in a massive way. To help facilitate this conversation, Flat Classroom are joining with TakingITGlobal.
Have you purchased or started to read 'Flattening Classrooms, Engaging Minds: Move to Global Collaboration One Step at a Time'? yet? Why not join this book club and be part of the conversation around the book, part of the conversation around Flat Classroom AND part of the conversation around Taking IT Global and their virtual classroom facility. The book club will run through the Flat Classroom space on the TIGED website (http://flatclassroom.tiged.org/). Participants can register with the code: bookclub.
This Book Club will be held every Wednesday at 5pm for 4 weeks, finishing on September 12.
