Would you Be Willing to help Judge @NetGenEd ?

Hi everyone! It is that time again.  If you want to understand more about Flat Classroom projects and the video assessment portion, now is your time. In fact, many have volunteered their time as a judge and gone on to start their own projects.  So, we're issuing an open invitation to educators and those involved in the technology field to spend 1 – 2 hours judging the NetGenEd videos.  Each video is pre-screened by two people and sent up for 2nd level judging and then to our final meta judge to determine the best of the project! We've got some great videos planned and would love to see some new faces.

Here is the note from my good friend, Julie Lindsay, who is the organizer for the judges for this project! Please join us!

We have many classrooms around the world busily collaborating and creating their final multimedia piece to submit for judging.  The deadline for submission of multimedia for the internal judging processes as well as the global competition organised by Don Tapscott is May 10.

There are two types of awards for this project: Video Challenge Awards and NetGenEd Awards. The Video Challenge awards are given by Don Tapscott's office and are not related to the rubric that we have created for the NetGenEd project. The NetGenEd project awards are based upon our grading rubric for the project. Just because a student receives an award for the NetGenEd project does not mean they have won a Video Challenge Award and vice versa.

If you are still able to judge for us starting May 11 for about one week we now ask that you do the following:

  1. Read material on the judges wiki at http://netgened2010.flatclassroomproject.org/Judges
