  • Technology in the classroom — Shanghai Daily | 上海日报 — English Window to China New

    I love this story about Shanghai International School and what they and other schools are doing in China. I particularly enjoyed the story of Toni Olivera-Barton and her journey (which yes, started with some Flat Classroom projects) but have now branched out into her running her own projects. One of the things Julie and I have said is that we will know we have succeeded when we see those we teach birth new projects. The global projects stage has lots of room for educators who are innovators to create and transform the classroom. Still in its infancy, global collaboration is an essential component of every classroom. I find the projects run by real teachers in the classroom tend to be more authentic and faster paced. Great article. How do you compare to the schools and strategies used in this article?
