Summary "What is education? What is a teacher? How do students learn in the 21st century? The Flat ClassroomTM project is redefining excellence in education. Schools and higher education are moving to online education, blended learning, and e-learning, redefining education as we know it. 'Flattening Classrooms, Engaging Minds' will take your school online one teacher at a time. Based on their award winning projects, these two classroom teachers use the principles that have connected thousands of students in educational Web 2 e-learning environments to take educators into the project plans and lesson plans that can make global collaboration a reality in the classroom. The new school of education is global collaboration. Whether you want to become a teacher or add to your teaching toolbox, when you connect globally and have contacts around the world, you become a more valuable teacher to your school. The 'Flat Classroom 15' challenges bring even the beginner into the exciting world of social media in the classroom in a way that any teacher (elementary, middle school, high school, or college) can use."-- From publisher's description.
