Do you have everything in place. Here's a checklist.

Hi everybody,We are now moving into week 3 of Building Bridges and trying to get all the organization pieces in place. At the beginning of any project there may seem as if there is an endless list of things to do, but once these organizational pieces are in place, we can all settle into the reason why we have elected to join the K-2 Building Bridges 12-2 project--connecting our students with others around the world in an authentic way.First we all need to make sure we have :• joined the Ning…See More

I am founder, head, and teacher of The Phoenix School, a small private school in Salem, Massachusetts.

Interest in Flat Connections
Ever since reading The World Is Flat, I have been interested in building the skills Friedman cited into our school. I am finding learning Web 2.0 skills fascinating and challenging and often look to my students for guidance. I am now interested in exploring the global connections that will help students understand how flat the world can really be.

Betsye,
Haven't heard anything new. I'm pretty sure that Nerine doesn't start school until the end of Sept. Matthew posted a new activity on this link: http://culturecollaboration.org/. Go there and check it out. I want to give you my school email address. Like everyone else, I'm extremely busy right now and don't always have time to read my Flat Classrooms comments. If there is something you want me to read right away, please feel free to email me...I'll reply faster. mfreeman@rcsnc.org

Betsye,
I have joined Matthew Stark's group. I thought you were going to do the same. Thanks for the update on Jackie's project. I didn't realize that her post was from last year until she sent me a message.
Let me know if you join Matthew's "global project" group.
Mary
