Does your class want to be a sounding board for Flat Classroom?

We have an open call for sounding board participants for Flat Classroom. (This is modeled after the amazingly successful peer review aspect of the Horizon Project.)

This is an excellent way to expose your student to global collaboration using 1-2 class days. There will be more on this later! Just reply here, direct twitter me privately or e-mail me at coolcatteacher at gmail dot com.

We're also assembling professionals who wish to be judges. This will take about 1 hour between November 19th and November 28th.

We're getting very close to some excellent best practices and hope that our proposal for NECC will be accepted to present them.

Hi Vicki,

my Digital Media class would like to participate as peer reviewers for the Flat Classroom project. We are studying many of the topics surrounding the project and this would be an excellent opportunity for our kids to become aware of the global opportunities a project like this can provide. My email is john at maklary dot com

Hi Vicki I would like to also volunteer our students to be peer reviewers. Can you tell me whether there is a minimum age for students to participate.
regards Anne
