GLOW

Flat Classroom Certified Teacher Doroty Suskind shares her ideas for learning through this video.

"Sometimes he doesn't just grow, he glows'! great final quote Dorothy!

 

Julie Lindsay's insight:

Celeste Weinstein's curator insight, February 20, 7:25 PM

This video creates a vision of a flat classroom where students have the opportunity to learn almost anywhere and connect to valuable resources around the world through the use of technology. This value of an open classroom that engages the students in a safe and interactive global environment encompasses the EDCI397 mission. Teachers need to help their students develop global competency and resilience to prepare them for the future. Although many teachers may not be able to implement flat classrooms as extensively as this video desires, teachers can still use this video as an inspiration to implement meaningful lessons, such as PBL, that involve using social media and technology. This will allow their students to become engaged in the global community and become globally competent students that can have a positive impact on society.
