The Power of Global Student Leadership

There was an audible (almost) buzz in the room as over 60 young people (high school level) and a handful of teachers came together in the virtual room (Fuzebox). Today was the very FIRST meeting of the Flat Connections Global Project Student Leaders. With a project of over 500 students and 36 teams there will be about 72 leaders sharing this responsibility across the 20 odd schools and six…

Thanks Julie for the help getting started with this global adventure. I just got it approved by the admin so I am signing my class up for the Flat Classroom Project. Can't wait!

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?
