Join us for "Meet the Flat Classroom" on Monday #flatclass

Join us Monday for “Meet the Flat Classroom.” I'm so happy to say that after our struggles with a potential hacker on our blogs/ google docs, etc. of the past few days (as I blogged yesterday), we've worked through the issues and our application forms are back up and running. THANK YOU to all of our friends who let us know about the problem and our friends at Google and my fellow Google Certified Teachers who helped us with the problems.

We're excited to share where global collaboration is heading in our corner of this beautiful educational global collaborative landscape. Feel free to join us and learn more about this and our book and how you can access free resource and information as well as join our projects or learn about our book. Julie and I will be there together for this action packed hour on Monday, so join us.
