  • 7 Steps to Flatten Your Classroom Vicki Davis 5010 Spotlight Connecting your classroom to other classrooms in the world need not be overwhelming. Learn the seven steps to successfully and safely connect your classroom in meaningful ways that will enhance your curriculum and excite your students. Madera Wyndham Hotel
  • Vicki – talks about Domingo Julie – talks about how this book is a journey and full of stories from classrooms around the world
  • Vicki -
  • Julie: as the students worked in teams with others throughout the world. Vicki:
  • Julie: We describe global collaboration in stages. GC 3.0 = more emphasis on co-created multimedia products, use of social media tools for communication, high expectations to connect in an ongoing manner, student-centered learning
  • Vicki: and the students produced multimedia while outsourcing a clip to their partner in another part of the world…
  • Julie: Flat classroom projects have been acknowledged over the past 5 years with awards and listed as exemplary
  • Julie: Our aim is to create projects and opportunities across all levels of education. Right now we have FCP and NetGenEd for high school, Digiteen for upper ES, MS and HS, AWL for upper ES, Eracism for MS HS and our new pilot this semester is Building Bridges to Tomorrow for K-2 level – over 40 classrooms from about more than 10 countries
  • Vicki:
  • Julie: And it is more than just students, it is about educators, preservice teachers, and experts merging together in a flattened learning environment Vicki: Where students and educators work together as one with mutually beneficial outcomes for all. Literally, the classroom has become…
  • Julie: Seven chapters in the book cover our 7-steps pedagogy to flatten your classroom. These steps have been literally well walked in over the last 5 years. We speak and share not from a theoretical point of view but from the trenches – from years of experience implementing global projects alongside other educators
  • Vicki:
  • Vicki: Did you know that you are here because of Web 2.0?
  • Julie: ?
  • Vicki:
  • Vicki: If we look at arguably the best education system in the world, the Finnish teachers pick books and customize lessons as they shape students to national standards. "In most countries, education feels like a car factory. In Finland, the teachers are the entrepreneurs," says Mr. Schleicher, of the Paris-based OECD, which began the international student test in 2000.
  • Vicki:
  • Julie: Good teacherprenuers are not renegades, they are connectors. They connect curriculum and connect with their administrators.

  • Vicki: The classroom teacher decides the appropriate action, which may include asking the student to apologize to the educational network or, in some cases, suspending or even banning the student from the network. One of the advantages of working as a global team on these projects is that the networks are monitored 24 hours a day, and RSS feeds make it easy to see new content as soon as it ’s posted. It is very rare that a student deliberately or maliciously sets out to be offensive when collaborating online as part of a project. In fact, we’ve suspended or banned fewer than 10 out of 3,000 students in more than three years.
