Best story of learning and global collaboration

I think what has helped me in the most positive way is seeing the easy access to global collaboration such as through networks like here at Flat Classrooms and the network I researched - Microsoft Innovative Educators Forum.  I have been truly amazed!  I have also impressed myself in that when I first began the Challenges I was very intimidated.  As I worked through each one, though, I enjoyed seeing my accomplishments.  I have gained confidence.  I know I have much yet to learn, but I feel more prepared and ready to face the challenges that will come.                 Flat Classroom Book Final SurveyThank you for the time you took to enter and complete this survey. You have completed challege #2. Please share your best story of learning and global collaboration and feel free to let us know you finished the book by tweeting to @coolcatteacher and @julielindsay - Thank you and good luck collaborating globally.

I use my phone to receive emails that I subscribe to which I learn from on a daily basis.  Some of these include:  Teach Preschool, TeachersPayTeachers, ASCD SmartBrief, ReadWorks, and my Twitter account is also linked to my email for updates.  These include resources and information I can use in the classroom.   

Synchronous and Asynchronous Communication Tools

The asynchronous tool I set up today was voicethread.  I researched this tool, and found it to be very useful for the classroom.  I commented on a segment about…

I am currently taking a technology class, and have just joined the PLN.  I am constantly learning new tech lingo, and now am familiar with what a mashup entails.  A combination of video, audio, or pictures makes for a very creative and innovative type of project.  It's great how it is directly tied to Blooms!  The projects can range from the simplest forms of Blooms all the way to the most challenging.
