Peer Review Sounding Board


We have been asked to take part in the 2008 Flat Classroom project which links students in five different countries. These students are creating videos that help explain the main topics discussed in the book The World is Flat.

We have been asked to review and comment on their work. Your comments will be read both by these students and by some serious experts who are evaluating the project. Your main audience is the students. You should remember in your writing that they are working very hard and also that only 1/5 of them are from the USA.

2008 Project Outline

Peer Review



Our task is to review and comment on their wiki work and video work.
Our comments will be read both by these students and by some serious experts who are evaluating the project.
The main audience for our comments are the high school students.
We need to remember in our writing that they are working very hard to meet the judging criteria for the flatclassroom project.


Organization of Topics for Peer Review


There are 11 topics. Each topic has the 3 categories - Design & Innovation; Story and Empathy; The Fun Factor (Play).
We will review a topic as a class to introduce and acquaint ourselves with the Review process.
Next, we will split into groups of 3 to evaluate 4 of the group projects:
