Our first group meeting took place on Tuesday, February 19, 2013 online from 8pm to 9pm. We used Any Meeting (http://www.anymeeting.com), which is a free web conferencing website. The technology worked very well as all team members were able to see each other and speak at the same time. We discussed the complexities of the assignment and how we would like to create the school. We also discussed tasks for each member (see the plan below). We discussed a possible inner city school, such as Atlanta City Schools for the area where the school would be found. We considered the Ron Clark Academy, the Kahn Academy and the online schools as good resources for the project. We also talked about assessments to guide the learning. We believe the flipped classroom might also make a great guideline for the project. We will meet again on Monday, February 25, 2013 to get into more details of the assignment. There were no challenges, issues or problem behaviors. In our next meeting we will develop a more concise project plan with deliverables. Here is the url for the first meeting: http://www.anymeeting.com/cutting/ED52DD85814A. Each section can only be 2 pages due to the limited size of the document.

Our group is collaborating weekly on this project. We are using a video conferencing tool “anymeeting” (http://www.anymeeting.com), to share ideas and formulate our plan of action. We are also using an online project organizer so we can add and edit content and keep ourselves on schedule with our project plan. We are submitting our reference material to this website so we can all use the research submitted.

We defined our focus group. We considered the Ron Clark Academy, the Kahn Academy and the online schools as good resources for the project. We believe the flipped classroom might also make a great guideline for the project. We also created our peer assessment tool and assigned sections for each of us to research and write. This project was submitted on time and is a good reflection of our collaborative work.
Each section can only be 2 pages due to the limited size of the document.
