Collaboration Inspiration

Simply, beautiful.

YouTube – Eric Whitacre: A virtual choir 2,000 voices strong

While I am unable to take credit for this gem of a find, I felt compelled to share this Eric Whitacre’s work on a Virtual Choir created via YouTube.  This is an inspiring and powerful TEDtalk that shows the power of collaboration via the internet, as well as one individual’s drive, dreams, and unwillingness to give up.

As it goes with the power of collaboration, I came across this video that was shared within a Google Group by Flat Classroom Certified Teacher candidate, Heather Davis.  It moved me enough to share via a blog post.  Thank you Heather for this amazing inspiration.  Collaboration via the internet is sometimes questioned and criticized.  If ever you question its power, this video may change your mind.  Interestingly, the Flat Classroom Project calls upon high school students around the world to create multimedia artifacts using “outsourced” video contributions from students in other classrooms and various countries around the world.

Have a hand in collaboration…  Think of some way today you can engage your students by having them collaborate.  It pays dividends in life experience.
