Flat Classroom Project

My video was about the World Wide Web and my subtopic was invention and innovation. I made a video about an invention I came up with called Intel Cranium. Intel Cranium is a chip that inserts into a person's head and gives them access to the internet.

Our class participated in the Flat Classroom Project this year. My topic for the project was the World Wide Web. I enjoyed the project because I got to collaborate with students all over the world, and I also got to learn more about the World Wide Web.

Flat Classroom Conference

Our teacher and one student from our class attended the Flat Classroom Conference in Qatar. The rest of us participated virtually. It was a very interesting project and conference because our teacher and classmate sent us videos from Qatar, so it felt like our whole class was there.

This is my video for the NetGenEd Project. It is called Net Generation Education because I showed what education is like in this generation. I used an outsourced video from ShealeyR of Montana.
In the NetGenEd Project, my topic was the Personal Web. I enjoyed the project because I got to learn more about the personal web, and I got to be the assistant project manager for the personal web. It helped me improve my leadership skills because I had to handle some wiki problems.
