This morning I read a post from Vicki Davis - "Cool Cat" Teacher blog about flat classrooms and how 6th - 9th grade students in her school district participated in a program called "Digiteen". It is a collaborative project with students from Qatar, Austria and other countries. The students learned about Digital Citizenship, talked with students from around the globe, and then created the projects that are shown in the video clip below. It is 15 min. long, but I was impressed with a couple of the projects, if you don't have the time, watch the slide show at the beginning. You can sign up your students and be a part of this process at http://www.digiteen.org/apply.html.
I also highly recommend that you join the Cool Cat Blog.
