I was recently invited to participate as an "expert reviewer" for the Horizon Project. For those of you unfamiliar with the project, I must preface a description with two words: very impressive. From the project's wiki website itself:
The Horizon Project is the follow up project to the Flat Classroom Project conducted in December 2006. The practices from the first project have been refined and the number of classrooms have been expanded to five to increase the geographic and cultural diversity. (See the classroom requirements.) This is a joint project between five classes ranging from grades 10-12 at the International School Dhaka, Bangladesh, Westwood Schools in Camilla, Georgia, Presbyterian Ladies College in Melbourne, Australia, the Vienna International School in Vienna, Austria and the Shanghai American School in Shanghai, China to research, discuss, and envision the education and society of the future according to the six trends outlined in the Horizon Report 2007 Edition.Needless to say, I'm very excited and honored to be a part of the project.
