Editorial Reviews

Review

"Flattening Classrooms, Engaging Minds'' is a terrific guide, by two real pioneering teachers, on how the networked world can be used for cooperative learning that can enrich education and empower students -- anywhere and everywhere.
- Thomas L. Friedman, author,  "The World Is Flat.''
 
Insightful, innovative, and practical, this book is a must read for any educator interested in preparing competent global citizens. 
 - Yong Zhao, Ph. D, Presidential Chair and Associate Dean, College of Education, University of Oregon
 
In a hyperconnected world, it's imperative that students gain deep, rich understandings of other peoples and places. This book demonstrates in concrete detail how every classroom can be a global classroom.
 -Dr. Scott McLeod, University of Kentucky and Founding Director of the UCEA Center for the Advanced Study of Technology Leadership in Education (CASTLE)
 
 
Open the door and find a new world! In this significant contribution to global education, Julie and Vicki have produced a resource for teachers that contains much needed information, challenges education thinking and provides resources on each and every page.  This is a book a teacher can read and immediately open a global door for their students. For me. it is so exciting (and a relief!) to see that the voice of change in education thinking is the voice of our students.
- Tony Brandenburg, Fellow, Australian Council for Computers in Education

From the Author

High speed Internet, social media, and mobile devices have opened up a remarkable world of connection and collaboration. Global economies are now increasingly intertwined. Multinational teams are becoming the norm in the workplace. Yet most schools are unchanged.

As schools struggle to engage students with learning and disengage them from their cell phones and social networks, there are some schools leveraging technology and social media to launch learning forward. By implementing global collaborative practices, we are building the bridges today that the society of tomorrow will walk across. 

We can change society for the better from the bottom up, while improving education and student engagement. We want students and educators to be able to connect and get along with other people globally without losing their own identity and sense of belonging to a country or culture. We are forging new pedagogies. We question current education systems that place value on content above process. We believe that collaboration and community learning increases understanding as a valuable part of what classrooms are already doing. 

Global collaboration is not a choice between current pedagogies or global collaboration. Rather, it is an "and" proposition. We should use current teaching pedagogies and effective global collaboration pedagogies as part of the complete, healthy classroom ecosystem. You can get your classrooms and schools there one step at a time. This book will teach you how.
