Challenge 15

The Flat Classroom 15 Challenges were an eye opening experience for me.  I have learned how global collaboration can take students far beyond the four walls of a classroom.  I have used technology that I didn't know was available.My favorite challenges were the last two that several classmates worked together on.  It was a great experience to work with people I have never seen or talked to face to face.  We worked well together.  Everyone had input and completed the projects on target.See More

"I think it really depends on the professional development.  If it is self-selected and self-driven, then it can be very effective.  Most of the PD mandated by my school and district is not as helpful.  It generally feels like a chance…"
