21st Century Learning Technology, K-12

As a companion to the bestselling book The World is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-First Century by Thomas Friedman, Atomic Learning has developed a workshop tutorial. Atomic Learning, an online database provided to schools by Iowa AEA Online, is a web-based software training and curriculum resources web site that provides short, easy-to-understand tutorial movies. The workshop titled the Seven Steps to a Flat Classroom guides users through flattening their classroom by expanding it to include global communities and collaboration tools. The workshop includes more than 80 tutorials on topics such as applying NETS standards to global projects, connecting to resources to help transform classrooms, connecting classrooms online, and digital citizenship and safety.
