Profile Information

Anne Mirtschin
About Me:
A teacher in south western Victoria, Australia, in a small rural prep to year 12 school. I am a firm believer in and supporter of the flatclassroom and am passionate about the use of web2.0 tools.
Interest in Flat Connections
Have been a member of the sounding board for the flathorizon project and flat classroom project 2008 and have found both my students and myself (and then parents of these students) were empowered with learning outcomes that have to be experienced to understand the depth of these outcomes. I will also attend the flatclassroomconference in 2009 in Qatar.

Assess: Challenge #9

The assessment process on a collaborative wiki has to be tailored to the project given. The assessment criteria needs to be reconsidered each time a collaborative wiki project is undertaken as the projects, procedures and outcomes may be different.

In the global storytelling project, students collaboratively pooled the book trailers onto a common site, but worked mainly as individuals in the creation of their own book trailer. However, there were several groups of students from…
