Aims of the course
The Flat Classroom® Certified Teacher course aims to train educators to be able to manage a global collaborative project built upon best practices of student collaboration and co-creation as modeled in the Flat Classroom projects including: Flat Classroom, Eracism, NetGenEd, Digiteen™, and ‘ A Week in the Life...’ projects. It also aims to provide an opportunity for those interested in managing a Flat Classroom Project in the future as part of the lead teacher program beginning in March 2011 to develop skills and experience with all facets of the project.
Certified Flat Classroom® teachers will become leaders in global collaboration within their schools and internationally and will be sought as partners by those planning global collaboration because of their proven competencies in the technology, technopersonal skills, and best practices of effective global collaborative projects. Those who earn this designation will have proven their competency through this rigorous course.
The course will run for approximately three months. Participants will be involved with one or more of the Flat Classroom projects and also complete the “Flat Classroom Fifteen” challenges as will be in the upcoming book (January 2012 launch, Pearson Education) on global collaboration from Julie Lindsay and Vicki Davis, ‘Flattening Classrooms, Engaging Minds’. Participants will have exclusive access to private content from the authors and co-creators of the project as part of this program.
