As I write this we have 80 schools participating, from four continents. Check out the map pins on our project map.What a great teaching tool!
We know that time zones make it difficult to communicate face to face (that is why we think Flipgrid is such a great tool) but we wanted to try it at least once during the project. Carolyn sorted all of you by time zones and we came up with a time that we hope will work for most of you. Switzerland and India, you are welcome to come to the launch party in your pajamas! Everyone is invited to come to our online launch party at 5 p.m. on Saturday, February 28 here in Chicago: https://plus.google.com/events/c2h7riv57v8ivas313hsebvq538
Though we are limited to 10 people in the hangout at one time, I'm hoping to be able to open the live hangout to party guests, so we can talk in person! If you did not see your G+ invite, please just email me to let me know you can come. If you can't come, don't worry--we'll post a recording of the event on our project website. Please bring earbuds with a mic or a headset with a mic.
