First Grade Online collaberation for first grade students

I am looking for another first grade classroom interested in collaberating through blogs or skype with my first grade students. I want to incorporate real life technology with in my social studies and science concepts. I want them to communicate with students from around the globe so that they can compare likes and differences throughtout the year. I am new to this so I will be learning right along with my students. Is there a place out there that would be a good place to start finding other clasroom with this same interest?

Hi
I teach a very international first grade in Switzerland and would be interested in blogging... and yes, I'm pretty new too so who knows how it could go.
I am so sorry that I am just now getting with you about this. The beginning of school is CRAZY in first grade. I have not put up a blog yet but I am going to in the next couple of days. I will let you know when it is up and going and then we can figure it out from there. My webpage is http://www.trussvillecityschools.com/Teachers/Tina.Fortenberry/defa...
go ahead and check it out and bookmark it so that it will be easier to find. Do you have a website?
I am a first grade teacher in Wilmington Delaware. I am trying to infuse technology into my teaching just like you. I have the same goals as you. I have a classroom blog (cindyodwyer.edublogs.org). My district does not allow us to use Skype, but we have new video conferencing equipment this year that would accomplish the same thing. I too am fairly new in incorporating technology, but I am not afraid to try. Last year I started a weather project through a blog and I intend to do this again this year. You might want to check it out and see if you would like to participate (weatherwatch.edublogs.org). I would be very interested in blogging or conferencing with your class while working together with you. You can reach me at cindy.odwyer@redclay.k12.de.us
Thank you so much! This will be a great opportunity for all of us. I have also contacted swissvis and I think they may be interested as well. This would be great if we could all collaberate together. You can go ahead and check out my webpage at http://www.trussvillecityschools.com/Teachers/Tina.Fortenberry/defa...
this is where I will be posting my blog. It is not up jst yet but I will let you know when it is ready to go. I will be contacting you soon.
