Thanks, Julie. Just joined the teacher education group.

Sounds great. Let me know when you are back and the date of the webinar. I will add it to my Moodle course site.

Thank you and safe travels!

Yes, Julie, I am teaching an online Literacy and Technology class (with 9 teacher candidates). We started the semester in January and it will be over in the beginning of May. I will offer the class to participate in FCP. My next meeting with the class is on Feb 24th. from 7:45 to 9:30PM EST. Would you like to meet with my class and explain the tasks for the project?

If yes, I will send you the link to Adobe Connect room.

Thanks! I unfortunately don't have my students at that time but I hope to participate, perhaps with another teaching colleague who may be collaborating with me here.

Thanks, Julie. Would it be worth us participating in the FCP student summit on 12/12 if we're interested in this Spring's projects?

Hi Julie,

I am a little overwhelmed right now. There is a lot to learn! But after 6 years in San Francisco, I am keen to bring Flat Classrooms to rural NSW. I am a French teacher for years 1 - 10 and I am wondering if I would be able to connect to classrooms in France or in French-speaking countries?

hi am feeling little lost...trying to keep up with work at school. I added the 2 modules for citizenship and communication at the same time. Can that be fixed? In regard to project how do we group ourselfves?

p.s.  I just sent a request to add you as a colleague but I just hit the send without adding any text!

Hello Julie,

Thanks for connecting.  I've posted some brief feedback to Barbara and Eva on the Teacher Educators discussion group.

Thanks Julie, yes I work with Heather now and I´m enjoying her so much!  I will get myself familiar with the Flat Classroom project thru the video and directions you sent and will let you know if I need something else.  Excited to be part of this!  Happy thanksgiving!
