MEET THE TEAM

This website belongs to 27 connected learners and their teacher.  In this unique project we want to show teachers how to transform their classroom and why they need to do so. “The book is about learning online in a transparent world. We are writing a book about teachers and students learning together. This is a book written by students on topics they are passionate about, and topics they need to learn more about. It is not a book written by a teacher or educational experts telling you what students want. It’s a book written by students and their teacher in a collaborative project where every voice counts.
