Today was the very FIRST meeting of the Flat Connections Global Project Student Leaders.

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?
