The NEXT Flat Classroom Conference is in

Join us at the W.A.L.L. - We All Learn and Lead in China!

The Flat Classroom™ Conference is a unique limited-seating conference including
students and educators to envision the future of education as they use leading
technology tools such as wikis, blogs, social networking and multi-media
storytelling. The conference is diverse in participation while allowing smaller
groups with leading world-class presenters in a "flattened" environment
where virtual participants join in the conversation from remote corners of the
world.

Educators will leave the conference understanding how to collaborate globally
and with contacts in hand to start projects. Students will leave the conference
with leadership skills, technology skills, presentation skills, and a better
understanding of diverse cultures and collaboration.

Educators come and join the Leadership Workshop! Teachers apply to bring students to the Student Summit and allow them to be challenged to find a voice while collaborating with others from around the world. Early Bird registration until September 15! All details, including online Registration at http://www.flatclassroomconference.com/.

Announcing
New Projects


Announcement Number 1: Flat Classroom™ Project - Invitation to Apply
We are delighted to announce the re-opening of applications for the
Flat Classroom Project 2010-2011. Each project is offered three-times
per year and runs for 8-10 weeks. The Flat Classroom™ Project is a
global collaborative project that joins together middle and high school
students (typically grade 9-12, 14-18 years old).

One of the main goals of the project is to 'flatten' or lower the
classroom walls so that instead of each class working isolated and
alone, 2 or more classes are joined virtually to become one large
classroom. The project is designed to develop cultural understanding,
skills with Web 2.0 and other software, experience in global
collaboration and online learning, awareness of what it means to live
and work in a flat world, while researching and discussing the ideas
developed in Friedman's book, ‘The World is Flat’. Projects are
constructed with an international set of classrooms (as mixed as we can
make it depending on applications). Students also have the chance to
interact with expert advisers and other classroom teachers and sounding
board classrooms in a true flattened learning mode.
