  4. 4. What Are the Programs Used?<br />This is done through the Internet using Web 2.0 tools such as Wikispaces and Ning. The Project uses Web 2.0 tools to make communication and interaction between students and teachers from all <br />participating <br />classrooms easier.<br />
  5. 5. When Does This Happen?<br />This project traditionally runs in October-December each year. <br />
  6. 6. Inspiration<br />This project was inspired by the book “The World is Flat” (Chapter 13 pages 501-503) by Thomas Friedman which disscusses a brief history of the twenty first century. An essential theme of this book revolves around the idea of globalization, and its impact on our world today. <br />
