Pay It Forward!

The Flat Classroom™ Projects are global, collaborative projects which focus on the use of Web 2.0 tools to foster connections, communications, collaborations and creations. These award winning, international, wiki-centric projects include the Flat Classroom™ project, the NetGenEd™ Project, the Eracism Project™, the Horizon project, and Digiteen™ all founded by Julie Lindsay,  E-Learning Coordinator at Beijing (BISS) International School, China and Victoria Davis, teacher and the IT director at Westwood Schools in Camilla, Georgia.  These two ladies are the cofounders of the Flat Classroom Conference, which convened in Beijing, China during the past two years in February. Currently running are these international projects:
All three projects need Expert Advisors and Judges right now.  Expert Advisors are a group of "experts" who have agreed to leave feedback for the teams during this project.
  • Each expert is asked to take at least two times to read and leave feedback on the main wiki page of the group on the discussion tab of the page.
  • Your job is to provide feedback and point out resources to the team. You are an "advisor." Please join our diigo group and your bookmarks will be sent to the groups. If you're not sure of what a term is, they align to the Flatteners assigned to each team and from Thomas Friedman's book, The World is Flat.

Judges come up with awards for multimedia artifacts as listed on the Awards wiki page decided using the prepared rubrics in combination with an online form. Expert Advisors are committing about an hour total and judges are also committing about an hour total.
Judges are assembling and choosing topic(s) to judge right now at ->
