Spring 2013


Here is the digital artifact created by four schools in a joint project within the Flat Classroom umbrella. More importantly, this artifact evidences how very young children from different parts of the world can affect each other positively through their sharing of ideas.

Worthy of note, our students (as young as age 5) effectively met NETS*S standards #2:
