You Know Your Classroom is Flat if… http://twitter.com/flatclassroom You and your students use Twitter, Meebo, MSN, Google Chat and other forms of ‘instant’ messaging to communicate with each other and around the world
You Know Your Classroom is Flat if… http://flatclassroomproject.ning.com You expect to hear from your students via a Ning message rather than an email
You Know Your Classroom is Flat if… There is no need to go into lengthy demonstrations of new software.  Good software is intuitive, students get bored with you talking so the best thing to do is let them play and explore it
You Know Your Classroom is Flat if… You and your students expect to have regular, if not daily, conversations with teachers and students from other countries

C ommunication Issues Communicate  OFTEN, CLEARLY, RESPONSIBLY “ But what if they think we are all terrorists??” “ I haven’t heard from a team member” “ I don’t understand what they are saying” “ My father told me if someone says bad words to me I am to say bad words back”
“ I was sharing some Flat Classroom experiences with colleagues last night over dinner. We were talking about curriculum reform and School 2.0 requirements.  It dawned on me that we need to be creating these opportunities for students to interact with others and communicate and collaborate in order to learn more about what life is like in all parts of the world.  We need to be promoting innovation and creativity and move into higher order thinking rather than robotic-style teaching.  My Grade 10 Flat Classroomers this semester were meant to be doing a unit of work focusing on Adobe Premiere and video making. I 'transformed' this unit into the Flat Classroom so that we could participate. This means we will not be learning Premiere in as great a depth.  But hey, what would you rather be doing, learning Premiere or helping to dispel the myth that all Middle Easterners are terrorists via a pro-active network of youth who are part of the future of this world??” Flat Classroom Diaries

  • 56. “ I was sharing some Flat Classroom experiences with colleagues last night over dinner. We were talking about curriculum reform and School 2.0 requirements. It dawned on me that we need to be creating these opportunities for students to interact with others and communicate and collaborate in order to learn more about what life is like in all parts of the world. We need to be promoting innovation and creativity and move into higher order thinking rather than robotic-style teaching. My Grade 10 Flat Classroomers this semester were meant to be doing a unit of work focusing on Adobe Premiere and video making. I 'transformed' this unit into the Flat Classroom so that we could participate. This means we will not be learning Premiere in as great a depth. But hey, what would you rather be doing, learning Premiere or helping to dispel the myth that all Middle Easterners are terrorists via a pro-active network of youth who are part of the future of this world??” Flat Classroom Diaries
