  1. An overview of the project including: teacher(s), location(s), objective
  2. What did students do in this project?
  3. How was the classroom "flattened?"
  4. Who did the students in the class work with?
  5. How could you do a similar project here? (Brainstorm ideas, this may be in any subject area)

You will share this with the group. (note: You may have to dig around to figure out what the students did, but I've given you hyperlinks.)

Flattening the classroom is about using technology to bring the world into your classroom. As Dean Shareski said, "It is about empowering students, empowering educators, and using technology in powerful ways that make sense in ways that promote learning. Interactivity, engagement, and pushing conferences to truly become participative". For a good example of the Flat Classroom Project can be viewed in Shareski's video.
