Flat Classroom Project Video

"I really liked the idea that you used your own videos and music.  It added an extra layer to your video. Good job."

Flatclassroom video

"Very good.  I like how you shared about animation possibilities and how the creative process is so important.  Bringing in the points about influence was also excellent."

Alexis' story

"Very good message but a bit short.  The first person narrative was good"

Arabella Jones- A Star in the Making

"This was very good.  I had never heard of Arabella but I will checking out her You Tube channel.  Thanks. One suggestion would be with your underlying music.  It would have been more effective if you had had her singing softly in the…"

Words Can Kill FCPVid

"Your presentation was very good.  The colours you used were very appropriate.  Music is definitely lacking. Appropriate music would have made this an even more powerful video. I got tears in my eyes when I realized an adult did this."

FCP final

"You have good images but if I were you I would rethink the music you used.  Were the lyrics appropriate for what you were trying to accomplish?"

"Really enjoyed your video.  I would have liked to have seen your credits scroll slower in order to be able to get a link if I wanted to do so.  Very well spoken."

Your Role in Flat Connections
About Me:
In August 2012 I moved to the American School of Guatemala to become the Technology Integration Specialist for Grades 2-5. I work predominately with the teachers and our main focus for the past eight months has been incorporating our new iPad program into the classroom.

Previously, for eight years I was a year 5/Grade 4 and then Year 4/ Grade 3 teacher, working at Yew Chung International School in Beijing. During my time in Beijing I fell in love with technology and was able to complete my Masters of Education in Integrated Technology from Walden University in December 2010.

I have followed the Flat Classroom projects with interest and had the privilege to attend the first Conference in Qatar which dramatically altered my previously very North American world view. I was also able to attend the 2011 Beijing Conference.

My Grade 3/Year 4 class was part of the pilot A Week in the Life project and it was exciting to see the students develop and begin to understand collaboration.

I am privileged to be a member of the third cohort of the Flat Classroom Certified Teacher program. I highly recommend it to any educator who is interested in developing a strong foundation in developing global collaboration projects that are authentic.

The opportunity to be a presenter at the Beijing Learning 2.011 Conference in 2011 led to doing a session at the 2012 Global Education Online Conference.

Hey Heather! sorry, I just found your friend request in my junk mail!!!  Let's communicate-- I can't find 23 videos in WWW, the way Julie L. says there are-- I only see 10. Am I missing something?

I enjoyed looking at your website and blog. We also recently studied the Iditarod...small world :).

Your school sound unique. I'm sure it's a wonderful place to teach. I also teach in a fantastic environment, but with far less diversity. All of my students speak English as a first language. They are, however, well traveled. I would love for them to be able to learn about a different culture, and have the experience of connecting with students around the world.

Our curriculum's look to be very similar. I spent some time teaching in Wales, and the overall philosophies of education are very compatible.

The time certainly poses a problem. As I look at the time differences, I see that it is 11:30 am by you, and it's 10:30 pm by me. Impossible? I hope not.

What is your skype name?

I am also a fourth grade teacher...looking to broaden my students' perspective. I teach in the suburbs of Chicago, and would love to get a "look into" a classroom in China.

Do you have Skype...I think it would be a wonderful experience to have our students meet, and perhaps discuss certain topics through skype (the visual will be so impt.). You interested?
