Hey there everyone! I am the instructional technology specialist at a 5th/6th grade campus in Houston, Texas. We are looking for other 5th/6th grade classes that we can collaborate with through video conferencing, wikis, or blogs on all content areas. If you are interested in planning a project then please let me know!!!
Being as small as we are and all in one space where learning can be individualized, we have a great deal of flexibility in what kind of projects we do. We do know we are going to be creating a scale model of a working city -- our whiole school -- so exchanging some information about different places where people live, government, entertainment, etc. might be one option. A number of us are going to be involved somewhat around this topic through flat classroom. If you are interested do the Global Collaboration under the Primary School group -- you will have to join,
Talk to you soon and we can plan further. We are new to Web 2.0 tools, but plan to learn with the kids as we go.
Super! I have 25 5th grade classes in my building so we can come up with a class for sure. I will get back to you once I have talked to my teachers to see who is interested. Any subject you are looking for more than others?
Hi! I'm a year 6 (5th grade) teacher in a British school in Seoul, Korea. My students here are pretty techy! We'd love to be involved, especially if it ties in curriculum content too! Hopefully we study relatively similar things!
WOW great!! We would love to work with you. We have classes in all content areas so lets chat so I am sure we can come up with something that we can work on together. I will talk to my teachers on Wednesday and let you know who is interested and then we can go from there.
You certainly are getting a wide rang of positive responses. I'm a little confused right now. Are we try just to find a partner class or are we trying to have a wider collaboration around a common topic that could include kids from all over? I'm more interested in a global collaboration.
I am a technology specialist at a 5th/6th grade campus. I have 25 5th grade teachers and 22 6th grade teachers. I have classes of all GT students and regular education classes. My original idea was to get a few partner classes with some of my classes. I had NO IDEA that I would get this many responses. A global collaboration is a great idea if I can come up with a central topic that everyone is interested in. I still want to just do some class to class collaborations.
