Reflections on Flat Classrooms, Grading Rubrics, and Second Life

I've not had a lot of time to blog a lot about what is happening in flat classroom but I took a moment today to record my thoughts on how this project is going. This is also being sent through my podcast — you can now subscribe through iTunes by searching for Cool Cat Teacher.

I told the perfectionists that I'd spend as much time as they needed me to help them “perfect” their movies and wikis. But as with all projects, there is the full range of performance from A to C levels in the results. This is as one would expect.

I've gotten permission to take the students on Thursday to the local coffee shop as a reward and we will watch the finished videos on the big screen there. We will record our conversations and I plan to share them with you.

I'll keep you posted!
