Expert Advisors are now gathering to advise high school students as they create their wikipages around the flatteners based on Thomas Friedman's book,The World is Flat.We are seeking adults to be expert advisors to high school students as they complete the FlatClassroom Projects this May/June.
Expert Advisors have two basic roles: to provide feedback and point out resources to the team.
1) Wiki Feedback Each expert is asked to take at least two times to read and leave feedback on the main wiki page of the group on the discussion tab of the page.
2) Resources and Links Please join ourdiigo groupand your bookmarks will be sent to the groups. If you're not sure of what a term is, they align to the “global flatteners” assigned to eachteamand from Thomas Friedman's book,The World is Flat.
What support will I receive? We have some feedback on advising and facilitating wiki collaboration. True collaborative authoring is truly in its infancy in education and you will have access to some of the leaders in this area. You will have a meeting with project organizers where they share how to facilitate collaboration and the elements of an effective wiki.
How much time does this require? Typically we have two “feedback periods” which typically take 1-2 hours each from the expert advisor.
Who can sign up? Many educational technology professors sign up their classes to serve as expert advisors to bring their groups onto the cusp of this field.

Besides, it is a sport that has evolved a lot from its beginning, but if you do not know too much about the sport is hard to see it as more than a kid game.However, this sport is more than just kids and young people making scooter tricks in a square; scootering is a kind of culture and a lifestyle that has more than 20 years growing to become what it is today.For this reason, we…See More
