  • ASB Un-Plugged – Transforming Teaching and Learning

    This is going to be a phenomenal workshop in Mumbai this upcoming February and Julie Lindsay and I are running a Flat Classroom mini-conference at this (the second of its kind – last year we were in Qatar.) With amazing educators like Doug Johnson, Scott McLeod, Bernajean Porter (helping w/ Flat Classroom miniconference) and also the wonderful students it will be great. We will have a few scholarships for students available this year, so go ahead and look at this and contact us at flatclassroom@gmail.com if you are interested in bringing students (4 per school is typically the limit.)

  • Wired Up: Tuned out | Scholastic.comAnnotated

    Excellent article from Scholastic Administrator Magazine that pulls from a wide variety of sources including Peggy Sheehy, Jim Gates, several college professors, and current research. (oh, and yes, I have a little in there also.) This is a good one to facilitate discussions about reaching today's students as it is backed up by a variety of sources.
