My Reflection for Flat Classroom Project I am in Group 9 C and our topic is Mobile and Ubiquitous. I discussed about the use of technology anywhere at anytime on the wiki discussion board. My video presented a school girl using all kind of technology to help her get through school such as using the camera to take pictures of the notes on the board or playing games to keep her entertained during class. I’ve been contacting with other group members in my group to discuss about our topic and share… Continue

Hello, I was apart of group 2c, which discussed how the World Wide Web has changed the world. I enjoyed participating on the Ning and Wiki to communicate with my partners and other classmates from my school. I participated on the Ning by posting a blog and launching a MP3 audio of my voice explaining who I am, which I’ve never done before and I honestly had a BLAST! On the wiki I left discussion tabs for my partners to read so they can have an update as to what I wanted for my video. This… Continue

My name is Jake F, group 5c, and my topic was “Using Web 2.0 to Share Information.” I contributed a video taken from YouTube that helped explain how web 2.0 was useful and how t was used. I did communicate with my partners over the ning although it was a bit slow because of time differences.
I would say my strengths on this project include being easily understood, I learned the value of time available time, how to be independent on work made, I learned what web 2.0 is exactly, and I now… Continue

My name is Jenny di Gennaro and I attend the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts. During the flat classroom project I was in group four, the changing shape of information, section C, the fun factor. I personally came upon a number of difficulties, so unfortunately I have not been able to do all that was required. I did however post several discussions on the wiki ranging from a post introducing myself, to sending video clip requests to both my partners, to offering to help with their… Continue

As a member of group 1-A, Connecting the World Online/Design and Innovation, my project was centered entirely around the idea that the world is shrinking as growing technology continues to facilitate global communication. On this topic, I contributed to the wiki information about the growth of the internet in America specifically, and my video’s focus on instantaneous virtual travel highlighted the possible extent of future technological capabilities. Thanks to the Flat Classroom Project, I was… Continue

My name is Mike Lion, and
I'm from Los Angeles, CA. My group in the flatclassroom project was
4A, Changing Shape of Information: Uploading, Design and Innovation.
When I first started out on the Ning, I didn't know what to expect
from the project. I was really excited about making the videos, but I
wasn't quite sure what the videos were yet. I had fun making my audio
introduction, and I made it really cool, with special effects and
stuff. I… Continue

As a group the first task was to meet each other on the ning. I will have to admit that in the beginning stages of the ning process I was really unsure and somewhat slow to join the ning. Once I succeeded on this task it was quiet easy to get in contact with my group members. Though I was quiet comfortable with the ning I was not so much with the wiki. When all are work had to be done on the wiki it took me while to become very comfortable with this space. Once I set up an RSS feed and began… Continue

The Flat Classroom Project was a learning experience for me, pertaining to the world of wireless connectivity, Group 11A. My group, made up of Tristan, Maria, and I, was involved in the design and innovation aspect of wireless connectivity. Even though wireless connectivity itself is self explanatory, it’s true definition is “… Continue

The video had dialogue and a fun and exciting dance at the end with personally rapped music done by me and my friend Analisa, in the… Continue

Online interaction during this project was very interesting. It opened up a lot of different areas and fields to work with and to express ones self. There were a lot of new ideas and methods introduced to me, showing that communication can be experienced in hundreds or thousands of different ways. Using this online technology was very interesting… Continue

Hey I’m Maegan Mandarino and for the project, the topic for my group, 6A, was globilization and outsourcing. As far as my contribution to the Wiki, I fixed some spelling letters and added a paragraph to my topic page on outsourcing. I also communicated with my partner from Georgia, and other members of my group through the Wiki and the Ning. I left a lot of posts, really without realizing it, on the Wiki and found that the communication was definitely better when you did a lot of it.

For The Flat Classroom Project I was in the group 11c in which the topic was wireless connection (fun and games.) My Video had clips of household items that were used with wireless connection, such as cell phone and applications, TV remote, house phones, headphones, wireless internet, laptop, and a radio.
There were a lot of strengths and learning experiences to Flat Classroom Project. I think that all the videos made were very good and show that people well… Continue

I am Zakaria Solotoff from Los Angeles County High School for the Arts. I was enlisted into group 8, and my topic was Personal Learning Environments and Social Networking. I was also drafted into sub-group B, sub topic Story and Empathy.
When I was told that I had to shoot a video relating to my topic, I had a vision. And thanks to my cohorts from Vienna and Georgia, that vision was made reality. Through their contributions and my genius editing, I managed to create a decent bit of media.… Continue

My thoughts on online interaction during the project:
Well, the ning and wiki were very useful because it gave us a place where we can all discuss and talk about the project. Because of the ning and wiki communicating with our partners was easy. I didn't really have any serious problems with communication, the only problem i had was that sometimes my partners would reply to my comments or discussions at all or they would reply too late. This problem can't really be solved, it depends… Continue
