If you’re at #iste11 and Serious about Global Collaboration: Today at 5pm

Today, Tuesday, at 5pm in Rm PACC 123, Julie Lindsay will be leading a birds of a feather designed to help schools find each other and begin global collaboration.

Flat Classroom Conference 2009 Doha, Qatar

The audience will be peppered with our certified Flat Classroom teachers – those who have been through our new book (www.flatclassroombook.com) and have proven their ability to collaboration AND CARRY THROUGH via our projects.

The audience will be salted with you… those of you who are ready to REALLY do it. So many teachers complain that it is hard to find classrooms that are ready to collaborate. Here is your chance.
