Would love to have your students act as expert advisors in the next Flat Classroom® Project 12-2 (September - December 2012)! Here is a link to a page that explains more about the idea -> http://fcp11-3.flatclassroomproject.org/Expert+Advisers

During that project, college students from two schools acted as expert advisors to the high school students in the project.

Thank you for accepting me as a part of your network. My school is finally embracing technology as a part of our students lives so I am excited.

Prof. Vigliotti, i am too happy to be a link in your East-West chain. Dialogue between these two sides could kickstart new paradigms in teaching-learning. As you might know, personalized learning began in Ancient India through its Gurukul system. Education in the present century has come one full circle where web 2.0 is again giving a personalized learning experience. Let's start searching for new formulas and equations to take education further ahead.

Nice to have met you in the cyberspace. See you!!!!
