Jim Thorpe Project/Virtual Field Trip Collaboration

Hello, my name is Tammy Parks, and I teach multimedia/broadcast journalism at Howe Public Schools in Howe, OK.  For the past 3 years, my students have created virtual field trips (VFT) as part of the Kids Creating Community Content Contest sponsored by the Center for Interactive Learning and Collabortaion and Tandberg.  My students have placed in the contest each year, 1st place in 2008, 3rd and 4th in 2009, and 1st and 2nd in 2010.

This year, one of our chosen topics is Oklahoma Native American, Jim Thorpe.  We are looking for collaborators specifically from Lawrence, KS, Carlisle, PA, and/or  Jim Thorpe, PA, but are open to any passionate teacher/classroom.  We would llike to collaborate (Skype, Wiki, etc.) on research, project development, and/or invite an audience to "take" our student created VFT via H.323 technologies.  We would prefer an audience who has access to a 1:1 computer lab during the actual presentation.

Feel free to leave a post/fact/resource/hello on our Wall Wisher at: http://www.wallwisher.com/wall/jimthorpe

This project will be aligned to state/national standards as well as ISTE NETS*S.

You can follow our project development at: http://jimthorpe.wikispaces.com/

Project Time Line: Fall/Winter 2010

Thank you!  We would love to hear from you!  You can contact me at tammygparks@mac.com.
