• Keynote by Curtis J Bonk! The World Is Open You are invited to watch this keynote and respond via the wiki discussion tab or via the Ning.
  • Make sure you have joined the wiki (this wiki!). It is a 2-step process.
    • Step 1: Go to http://flatclassroomproject.org and in the top right hand side request to Join
    • Once this is approved you need to come back to this wiki, sign into flatclassroom wikispaces and then on the left hand side (of this wiki) select Join this wiki and then wait for approval (your teacher should be able to do this)


  • The TEAM GRID has been finalised! We have 10 classrooms and about 220 students!
  • Make sure you have found your TOPIC wiki and added your name under TEAM MEMBERS towards the end of the wiki (example linked is from the Workflow Software wiki). To clarify, each student is in a Topic Team and also an impact area AND a video theme type. For example students in Team 1A are researching 'Connecting the World Online', they are expected to put their name on the team wiki next to 'Current News', and contribute to this section of the wiki in particular. They are also going to design their multimedia influenced by 'The Story: Explaining the topic'.
  • Topic research and wiki editing should be the main focus for the next week. Each student is to contribute to the wiki and adopt a 'Wikipedia' editing approach where there is no direct ownership of contribution. Make sure you contribute! Do not worry if you are the first to add anything, feel free to carefully edit and improve other people's work. This is all part of the Wikipedia style, however make sure you add a comment to the discussion tab about what you have done.
  • Use of the Discussion Tab on the wiki: All participants need to add a discussion comment each time they put effort into editing the wiki. It may be after a period of work e.g. during a class, where at the end you leave a summary for your team members. Students should also be replying to others and DISCUSSING the work in progress in a collaborative and problem-solving manner. Teachers will also be contributing to this discussion and leaving supportive and constructive comments.
  • Flat Classroom Ning: Continue to connect with your team members and make sure you join your class group!
